Sorry guys, I'm a little tight for time to post this, so I didn't get a chance to search the forums for a similar topic as I'm sure one exists.

Quick and easy questions, hoping for a quick and easy answer.

I'm looking to get a 2nd internal HD for storage. Is it just as easy as plugging it in and being able to dump massive amounts of data on it?

Will I see any issues if I reformat the main HD and expect to pull stuff from my 2nd HD?

Plug it in, format it and put all the data you want on it.

If you're using the new HD strictly as storage, you just need to install the drive and format it. However, you cannot load Windows onto the new drive without more work, but since you're only using the new drive for data, everything will be simple.
