    Ideas for 2nd drive?

    hey everyone! I jsut installed another HDD in my drive bay. I have never done this before and do not want to use it soley for storage and making it bootable to another OS doesn't make sense since I can doa VM.

    What else cool can I do with an extra internal drive with a bunch of free space? not sure how to utilize it other than dfor storage or a totally different OS.

    Put your VMs and your pagefile on the second drive - it will speed things up.

    Maybe too late now but if you don't need all that space, should have done yourself a favor and bought an SSD for system and used that HDD for storage.

What's coming after Windows 8.1? Any ideas?
I'm starting to get the sense that Windows 8/8.1 is a sort of Windows Vista only with a lot less programming issues. It's certainly a faster, more stable OS than Vista but it reminds me of Vista because it's in between a sharp, very well done OS(Windows 7) and something that's coming up in the near...
