Okay, I just did that. I understand I can install and store things there now. I just have one last question, and thank you all for being patient and answering me.

I'm using this computer for music producing, if I store all my programs in the backup drive, can I still use them all like normal and will they be in my start menu and etc? And if it's business as usual, will performance be the same as if they were all stored on the harddrive with windows on it (the 120 gb)

Thanks everyone! A bunch of life savers, you all...

Put your DAW and plugins and the like on your SSD, but use your second drive for the actual audio.
