My first hardrive backup to a new secondary hardrive was a success..YAY!
And, I checked the space taken up on the second drive and it looks like i got everything. But here's the problem..

I only have the stock 1GB of RAM that comes with my Mac, and cannot afford more ..and my computer is seriously slowing down (spinning beach balls). on that 1st hard drive. (the one i prefer to work off of)

I still have 539.6 GB available on the second drive, so that is not an issue.. okay thanks.:o

Not sure what the question is...

oh, oops!

My question is, what should I do to put stuff from the first drive that is taking up so much space, onto the second drive, until i can afford to get more RAM?

I was thinking this is the best way:

1) Make an alias of each thing I can move temporarily to the second drive.
2) Place the aliases on the desktop instead of the actual files themselves.
3) Make a folder for the actual files called:
"Stuff i would rather keep on my desktop if i had enough RAM" and put them all in that folder.
4) Move that folder to the second drive until i get more RAM.

I am guessing the second drive is only active with RAM when i use it as the main desktop drive.

Maybe there is a better way.. ? thank you

I don't think disk space and RAM are going to be terribly related to each other. If you need RAM, you need RAM...
