Drive Question

Recommended Posts

Please forgive me, I am coming from the windows world and am sure I am using the wrong labels/terminology regarding drives.

I have a Dell laptop with a 1TB NVMe C drive and a 2TB D spin drive.  I want to install Linux Mint Cinnamon to the C drive so that I get the greatest amount of speed which means disconnecting the D drive to insure the Linux is loaded to the C drive.  Can I later connect the D drive and use that for bulk storage?...like for photos.

Thanks

you can read/write windows drives as long as they are not encrypted, linux won't install on C:\ it uses it's own file system, so I assume you mean that the C:\ drive is where you intend to install linux, if so, it will take over that entire drive with it's own filesystem
