Default Two HardDrives

Does or has anyone ever had a computer with two harddrives on it?
I have not but I have tired to make one and it did not work out to well. I think it would be very usefull because you could store all your info on both so if one gets fried you have a back up.
What do you think?

I have 4 in mine currently. Having multiple harddrives is a great idea because it is easier to store things and safer.

What I typically do is put my operating system and applications on one harddrive, and my other data such as music, videos etc.. on another harddrive.

I image the operating system harddrive and in the event it fails I can buy a new one and get everything back to the way it was in about 5 minutes.

As for the music/video folder, I've lent it to friends and put it in their computers at lans so we can leech much more faster and not clog up the network. By allowing this my friends have a copy of all my music/videos so they are my backup if that drive fails.
