    There is no built-in/automatic accommodation for that.

    If you're on a full install, you can manually partition/format the new disk and then add an entry in /etc/fstab to mount it at each boot, then point whatever you want to that directory to use the disk.

    If you're on NanoBSD, fstab is not used so you'll need to add a shell command at bootup to mount the additional disk.
