Server - Additional Hard Drive
Posted on 2013-12-30
I have a laptop Server that already has 2 Hard drives, one is a Solid State 64 GB hard drive and the second is a 750 GB Hard Drive.
I have Windows 2012 Server installed with lots of software on - e.g. SAP reporting, SQL Server and much more. I now need to install some more software but I am running out of storage space.
I want to understand (in detail please) what is the best practice to add a 3rd hard drive that can be used as efficiently as the 2nd internal hard drive to install the additional software. I understand that I cannot use a standard (generic) external hard drive for this and I know little about the hardware or types of hard drives to understand what needs to be done to make this possible.
I would appreciate advice that is specific (sorry but I get too many generic answers on EE) for example a link to the type of hard drive I need and high level steps / considerations for installation of the hard drive.
