    drive questions


    Help, I've been very stupid, so please don't give out to me. I have a Dell G5 5587 and I was running out of space on the c drive so I decided to replace the drive with a Samsung SSD 870 EVO.

    But.. I took out a WD 1TB WD 10SPZX.

    The I was fine, laptop turned on ok. The c drive looks like the samsung ssd and looks like it has the right amount of space.


    then I decided it would be nice to use the wd drive as an external drive. so i put it in the enclosure I got and plugged it in. I knew I would have to format it, so I did. I now have odd partitions.


    so then I thought.. omg what have I done.

    I thought I was replacing the 100gb ssd with a 500gb ssd.

    I think instead I replaced a ITB hard drive with a 500gb ssd. Is that right? there seems to be space inside my laptop that says ssd and one that says hhd. in the ssd slot there is a tiny thing that looks like a memory card. arrgh. please help me.

    :)

    Optical Drive Issue

    Hi Jerry, you're welcome.

    Here's mine after I rt clk'd on my Documents Folder like you show in Scrsht 11:

    I'd like to wait until you reply to my question in Scrsht 12, if it is a remnant of the process try deleting the one on the dsktp and see if the one in send to also disappears. If it stays in send to, test it, and if you're still having problems I'd suggest you could go back to: Option One: To Add or Remove Items in Send To context menu for Your Account (current user) and do Step 3 to remove it and start over using Step 4 but be very careful of your steps in creating the shortcut and be sure you d&d that shortcut to the send to part of the address.

    I'm busy today and I probably won't be back until the evening.

    Suggestions for Maps/Drive

    Some more suggestions



    - When you set a destination in drive, you should be able to set an address which is existing in the contact list

    - You should be able to view all step by step navigations. right now you are not able to see complete direction steps.

  10. Question about flash drive speed degradation.

    in Windows 10 Drivers and Hardware
    Question about flash drive speed degradation.: On my system, flash drives slow down with age. The worst example is a two or three month old 3.0 drive, which I've been using for the virtual drives of VMs, sometimes writes at less than 1MB/s. Is this kind of thing normal, and would switching to an SSD solve it? 172499
