Solved How do I set up another drive

Specs: Windows 10, 8
I was wondering how to set up another drive on my pc. I use a windows pavilion notebook. I saw my java programming teacher have another drive, D:/, set up on his device. I don't know if this is a hardware thing (sorry if I posted in the wrong section), or if it is availible to everyone with software. I can run about a terabyte on my pc (907 GB).

You can have multiple partitions on a single hard drive. You can only have two internal hard drives on a laptop, if there is a second drive bay from the factory. Multiple partitions will not provide additional storage but can be helpful in other ways. For instance, running different operating systems.

You can use external USB hard drives to get additional storage space if needed.

✔ Best Answer
Most additional drives on a laptop are going to be USB. An external hard drive may need to be partitioned and formatted after it's connected. Here's some info on using Disk Management:
