Does a slave HardD have to bigger than the master?

I want to add an additional Hard Drive to my PC, and I remember reading that the second drive should be equal or bigger than the master. Firstly, why is this? And secondly, what would the implications be if I had a small slave attached (internal)?

Thanks in advance...

My Secondary HDD is 3x the size of the Primary Drive and both work perfect.

Hanx!

No.

None.

Any size you have is OK.

I think the reason behind a larger HD in a secondary or external situation, is to allow plenty of room for backups and data storage.

This implies that another HD needs to be larger, but finally it is down to the size of your pocket and more importantly what you propose to do with all that extra space.

Thanks for the informative and speedy replies! It turns out that both drives will be equal anyway (I forgot about my partition when checking the size of my master lol)!
