External HDD being used as internal, speed question
Hello, I have searched this site, other forums, and Google, but I could not get the exact answer to a question I have. I have an external hard drive that does not have the USB adapter, mounting brackets, or a case for it. I want to go ahead and use it as an extra internal storage drive. The installation process is of course, very easy and straight forward, so no problems there. I want to know if it is being used as a storage drive with no other function, will I have any speed decrease in my system overall? I don't see this as being a problem but I wanted to get an actual answer from someone with more experience than myself.
* I just realized this probably should have been put in upgrades and not repairs. Sorry for the mistake.
