I meant, if I added an external hard-drive to my system via USB, would Windows XP manage the files on my computer as if there was only one hard-drive - i.e. does Windows XP see an external hard-drive connected via USB as an extension of the existing, internal, hard-drive, or does it view it as a seperate hard-drive.
For instance, when installing a programme, would I be prompted to chose between the internal and external hard-drives for the location of it, or would the programme simply be installed as if only one hard-drive was active within my system?
Simple answer is no. You can with internal drives using either raid to span or converting basic disks to dynamic & then spanning the volumes. there is no way I know of to join a internal & external drive as one
