Add disk space to the OS drive without raid

Welcome to Programming Tutorial official website. Today - we are going to cover how to solve / find the solution of this error Add disk space to the OS drive without raid on this date .

I have 2x40GB SSDs. When I install my Windows on the first drive, after a while I start to get the “Low disk space” messages. My mainboard doesn’t have a RAID controller and since it’s new, I don’t want to buy a new one. I looked around and couldn’t find a suitable RAID controller to buy.
I was wondering if there is a way to install the OS and after the first run, somehow append the disk space of my 2nd SSD and make it a 1x80GB drive. Is there a software solution for this?

For the record, I’m using Windows 8.

Answer

There is a way to do it, it is called spanning, but I am not sure how to accomplish this as I have never had to do it…

Here is a site that detials the process, hopefully this helps… I don’t think it will matter if it is Windows 7, or 8 as the process should be fairly similar.
