Default Adding New Hard Drives

I recently had my hard drive fail. I had a 20G on the spot to use and got everything running again. Ive gotten to the point where I need more space and was wondering if I got a new hard drive would I be able to just add that in without needing to reload everything onto the new one, or would I just be able to put it in there and have the extra room available.

there's no need to install another os in the drive you can just format it and use it.
