Interconnect hard drives and make it one big storage.

I have 7 SATA Hard Drives each of 500 GB. I wanted to know if I could interconnect all hard drives with some device/cables and make it one large storage and have some kind of RAID configured?

Is this something possible. Please guide me with the materials I may need and steps.

One of the ways to connect HDD to each other is:

  •  Step One: Use Symbolic Links
  •  Step Two: Create a Spanned Volume
  •  Step Three: Set Up a RAID Array

 This is a very cheap method and its very technical that's why I am providing you a link for a better understanding.

Yes, it is very possible. All you have to do is to shop for a hard drive docking station that has seven SATA ports. The hard disk docking station is a gadget that is used to hold many hard drives and can be connected to the PC via USB. You will then be able to access the hard disks as one using your PC or laptop. You can shop for the hard disk docking station on Ebay or using this link.

It is quite hard to find a hard disk docking station that has seven ports though, the other alternative is to buy two or more docking hubs and connect them to the computer using USB. Example-hard disk-docking-station.
