Overflow recordings to 2nd harddrive?

I currently have a setup with (2) 160 Gig harddrives. The first hardrive has Windows, MP3's, and a few other misc items leaving me about 80 gigs of unused space. The 2nd 160 gig is dedicated to Sage Recordings. Granted I havent used up all the space yet, but wanted to know if there is a way to allocate the spare 80 gigs for sage recordings.

Thanks

Simply add another directory to Setup -> Detailed Setup -> General -> Video Directories (p. 127 in the v2.1 manual + Appendix C). But, you are better off having video dir partitions use a 64K clusters size -- perhaps consider breaking the main OS drive into 2 partitions & use the new partition w/64K clusters for recordings.

Just setup a 2nd video directory. >setup>detailed setup>general>video directories. As Opus would say see manual for details on how space allocated etc.

Yeah... I would say something like that, wouldn't I?
