  1. 920 GB free in unused DATA (E:) drive for cache?


    I’m editing video in Premier Pro and came to the suggestion/option of having the cache sent to place other than C: to help with lag. Then I saw E: sitting there and really don’t know what it is. I’m working with media files in My Passport (G920 GB free in unused DATA (E:) drive for cache? :), but don’t have any other usb storage connected.

    Ultimately, I know how to map it there in PPro settings, but can/should I use this E drive for my editing cache?

    :)

  2. c users need to delete all 5 gb 3 gb for One Drive can I delets all these files?

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. Let me help you.




    • Are you trying to install any programs/games?


    If you need 5 GB space to install any programs, deleting the cloud data from One Drive does not help you to get the required space in your drive.

    I suggest you to delete the unwanted data and unused applications to clean up the drive.



    I hope the information helps. If you need any further assistance, please feel free to contact us again. We will be happy to assist you further.

  3. Lost data from hard drive, what to do now?

    Well, I'm sorry to hear that it's a WD My Passport that failed on you, @tomhenry ! *Frown 920 GB free in unused DATA (E:) drive for cache? :(
    I'd recommend you to try using a different USB cable with it and see if that will help your system to detect it without it disconnecting.
    I'd also suggest you to go to Disk Management and see how the drive is listed there. It won't hurt to check up on the health and SMART status of the HDD by running the QUICK and EXTENDED tests from the WD's Data LifeGuard Diagnostics. Here's a link to the available software: http://products.wdc.com/support/kb.ashx?id=11ZOpD

    Give these troubleshooting steps a try and keep us posted with the results!

  4. 920 GB free in unused DATA (E:) drive for cache?

    My data folders (Documents, Pictures, Videos, Music, etc) are on DRIVE E: not Drive C:

    I THINK the programs are looking in the wrong place.

    All my Programs are stored on Drive C:

    Drive D: is my Recovery Image

    Drive E: is where all my Data files were stored (Documents-Pictures-Videos, etc).

    Drive F: has: Clipart-Document Themes 14-Media-MSOCache-Office 14 - Stationery - and Templates.

    Hewlett Packard set my computer system up.

    Before I did what you suggested above about MOVING files - I had only one listing for Drive E920 GB free in unused DATA (E:) drive for cache? :(DATADRIVE1-Docs-Pics-Video-Music). Now Drive E: shows up listed under THIS PC as E:\ (and it contains ALL my data - docs-Pics-Video-Music)). All these data
    folders also show up listed under THIS PC in the DOCUMENT folder; AND, all the datat folders also show up in DATADRIVE1-Docs-Pixs-Music-Video!!!! Whatever happened when I moved the files caused them to appear in several places!

    I don't think the programs know where to find anything!!!! DUD!

    I also have 4 external Western Digital hard drives (but I don't have all of them plugged in simultaneously). My problem with the external hard drives is that now Windows does recognize my 6 TB one - I know it is working because the little light is on and
    blinking....the drive just does not show up in File Explorer.

    Do you have any suggestions?
