    BE VERY CAREFUL YOU CAN BREAK YOUR SERVER DOING THIS

    Now that we're clear of that part.

    It sounds like you could fdisk/mkfs them and mount them as /home and /home2. Or make them into an LVM and one big /home. But don't forget /backup too!

    This link will tell you about how to make partitions and format disks. Preparing the disks - Gentoo Wiki

    fdisk -l should show you the partitions on the drives you have. If you're using centos7 take a look at XFS it's very fast!

    Thanks!

    just mount them in the home folder or put a symbolic link to the home folder.
