2nd Laptop Harddrive


Recommended Posts

Anyone have any experience with adding a 2nd hard drive in a laptop's optical disk drive bay? There are several adapter out there for this. I'm thinking of using one harddrive for windows and the other one for a couple of different linux distros. I know I could set it all up on one hard drive but I really don't want to partition my main drive. I'm just wondering if anyone has went this route. Also could i get it set up so that windows only turns on the windows drive and linux only turns on the linux drive so that I don't have two drives taking battery power?

Most laptops use SATA connectors, also when installing a new HDD make sure its a 2.5-inch mobile hard drive.
