    im my quest to beef up my machine for VMWare i was given three hard drives (2x 20GB and a 40GB).. now there is already a 30GB on the machine.. What i want to do is put all three under one drive letter C:\ so i can store all my VMs.. i did it once but forgotten now :rolleyes:

    thanks for you help if you can!

    Unless you're running RAID then the only way that I can think of doing this would be to mount the drives as folders in your existing C: Drive.

    This is done through the disk management snap-in.

    if you convert them to dynamic then you have many options.

    i thought of that one.. empty ntfs folder... and then this will just increase the size of c:\ lets say?

    Well, it sort of will.

    What it will do is enable you to have a folder that is capable of storing say 20 GB in it. you could call the folder MS VM's or something meaning that you can store your VM's in that folder.

    Or, you could buy a much bigger hard drive and save all the hassle

    :oops:
