How do you combine 6 hard drive to creat one big hard drive over 1 TB?

I have 6 internal hard drive and I want to know if its possible to somehow convert it to make it into a external drive and how do I combine all six drive into one big storage. Do I need anything special

You can use Windows to stripe data across all drives and create a large volume, but you're six times as likely to lose everything if a drive goes out. With six drives, you should use a RAID controller with RAID 5 which will allow a drive to fail and still be functional until the drive is replaced. You'll also have much higher read performance and write performance (with full stripe writes) as the workload is spread across several physical disks.

If these are PATA drives, check out 3ware controllers (try ebay). If these are SATA, there are a number of vendors that sell RAID controllers - 3ware, LSI, Highpoint, Adaptec, Promise. I believe all of these vendors have 8 port SATA RAID controllers.

With the exception of Highpoint, the controllers mentioned above are hardware RAID controllers which means that the controllers have their own processor and memory instead of using system CPU and memory for RAID 5 calculations and cache.
