Got an older Compaq computer I've been fooling around with, I've read about comps with a second hard drive in them, but I'm not real clear on just what this does. I've got an extra hard drive kickin' around, what will this do for the comp. if I stick it in there? Will not having a CD with the install drivers be a problem? :confused:

You won't need any drivers.

Most people use the second for storage when they start to run out of space on the first. Or the page file can be placed there for faster access.

But the best use of a second drive is as a place to back up files/folders, or even the entire partition with something like Acronis True Image so that if the main drive fails, you have all your important data on another drive where it is safe.
