I currently have 1 hard drive and im running out of space. I need another hard drive (they will not be in any raid configuration) and i was thinking that I want that new drive to be passworded. I want to put all my files on the new drive and i dont want anybody having access to them. How do I do this? I also want it to be a hidden drive (kind of like a hidden file). The drives will not be combined into a single C: drive.
I currently have a 40 GB 7200 rpm hd and if I added a 100 GB 5400 rpm hd, will it slow down my computer? Will accessing the 40 GB 7200 rpm hd be slower since i just added a slower drive?
