Hello! :whistling:

You can get a different hard drive, but usually HDDs of the same brand name (Seagate in your case) work best together.

Yes, you could install them in RAID, but you would have to reinstall Windows.

Seagate has an installation guide here, but they have model-specific ones, so you may get another model.
