Default To RAID or not to RAID, That is the quetsion???

Hello Everyone, I have a question that's been on my mind about hard drive stuff. I have a few external and internal 2.5 SATA HDD and they're pretty decent storage sizes too, but I would like to combine them together to make a massive hard drive in terms of storage space. What's the best way of doing this?


I have read on a few different places online in regards to guides that I could do an expansion volume via windows/mac OS or I could do a RAID. I never did something this technical (for me lol) before and have a lot of delicate data that I do not want to risk losing. I also don't want to spend a massive amount of money for this cause its purely for personal use nothing professional. Any Suggestions?

Keep it seperate if you have data on these drives already.
