Installed second hard drive: now what?
I’ve just finished installing a second SSD in place of the optical drive on my Mid-2010 13” MacBook Pro (see Installing MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Mid 2010 Dual Hard Drive). I got it mounted and am seeing the additional 250GB of storage alongside the 120GB from the original SSD.
But now what? I guess I thought I was going to end up with a single volume where the computer would decide what data goes where, rather than needing to manually move files around. I found instructions on creating a RAID set, but I’m not sure if that would be what I’m looking for.
In the end, I’m hoping to have a single, shared volume for Mac to run on, plus a partition to run Windows through Boot Camp. Any thoughts? Should I just manually move some things to the second drive? What are others doing with their second drive?
