New System arrived!

Dell 8940 - It seems fast and silent. Here is current drive situation:

C: is current 1T SSD system drive that came with computer

H: is previous 1T SSD system drive that is in an external dock for now

I: is 6T HDD drive that has only latest photos for LR catalogue, in external dock

E: is 5T external backup HDD

F: is empty - I think a partition never used?

G: is the same, unused partition?

I have access to all drives.

I have another 6T HDD filled with photos for LR catalogues

I think only two slots left in chassis, one SSD and one HDD. The dock also has space for one SSD and one HDD.

I’ve installed new version of LR. Where do i go from here? Making best use of former C SSD, renaming drives, linking to LR, etc.

Thanks in advance...
