    You cannot extend the drive if it's on two separate physical disks. The only way to combine them into one would be a Raid 0 setup which includes a complete OS reinstall from scratch after configuring the Raid array. While it may give faster reads due to the parallel reads, it's risky because if one of your disk fails then your data becomes irrecoverable.
