I've got a small 64gb Samsung SSD with windows on it that I'm looking to replace soon, along with my mobo. I've also got my original 1tb HDD that I plan to replace eventually but I use for pretty much everything besides my OS. The new SSD will hold my OS + all of my drivers so all of the system necessities while my HDD will hold games, media, etc. My problem is that I have extremely slow internet and do a lot of gaming. Wiping my HDD would leave me redownloading everything for months. If I replace my SSD, reinstall windows on the new one, then hook it all up to the new mobo, will the data on my HDD be able to stay in tact or will I have to wipe it as well. This would solely be a storage drive and not part of a raid configuration so I hope that would prevent me from needing to wipe it. I've not tinkered with multiple drive setups when it comes to reformatting my system so I don't know what the outcome will be and would rather not just dive into it without being sure my data won't need to be wiped. **As a Side question, once I have the new SSD + another HDD, currently deciding on which to get (gaming, speed, and size important) should I configure them into a raid setup? Again something that I'd researched but don't fully understand.** Thanks!
