inspiron 620 - how many drives?

Jump to solution

My inspiron 620 came with 1TB drive. I'd like to put a small SSD drive in for /boot partition in Ubuntu, and add one more 1TB drive and make the two sata drives a RAID 1 (software raid) for the rest of the Ubuntu installation.

My question is, how many drives can I connect in the inspiron 620? If it doesn't support 3, what would my options be?

Hi ndizzle77,

Good day and welcome to the community!

Thanks for reaching out to us. Inspiron 620 can only hold 2 HDD maximum. The option we have is for you to install to HDD and set up as RAID 1. And you can do the partition on a single drive. For anything else, just let me know. Glad to assist.

Thanks and Regards,
