Hi everyone I'm a newb. I have two hard drives, one hard drive is 500gb and the other is 1tb. I want to use the second drive primarily to for movies and to store other files for backup. I have no idea on how to set up the partitions correctly and If any one can give me some advice on how to partition correctly and all that it would be much appreciated.
thanks very much
thanks very much
