I have an oldish laptop (Acer Aspire 4710) with a SATA HDD. I wanted to extend the life of the laptop by adding an SSD drive. But I don't want to keep my data on the SDD (since it will wear out the SSD).
Is it possible to mount my old HDD drive into the optical-drive bay? That way, I can keep the OS and apps on the SSD and my data on the HDD. It seems like the optical drive in my laptop is a PATA drive. Are there converters / docks available for doing this?
