    How to up d drive


    Not had a pc with two hard drives before and this one is sons gaming pc. So c drive is a 250gb ssd with Windows and a few games on. D drive has games installed that work via steam on c drive.

    I am confused already. Now he has so much installed I am doing a system image just in case.

    I have always used windows built in imaging. So when going to do an image, d drive is there as well to tick but it wouldnt work - failed. Unticked d drive and it happily made a system image of c drive. So how do I back up d drive? Can you do a separate system image of a drive that doesnt have an os?

    I just have the one 1tb external drive for backups/images set to Ntfs.

    Edit - when I open d drive there are folders. Is it possible to just copy and paste them onto a back up drive?

    :)

  2. D drive

    Hi,

    Based on the details you have provided us, it appears that there might be some corrupted contents on the said partition. We can also consider that this is caused by a virus.

    For us to check if a certain virus is hiding your files, kindly follow the steps below:

    • Type Command prompt in the search bar.
    • Type-in the following command:

      attrib -h -r -s /s /d D:\*.*
    • Press Enter to execute the command.

    If you think that there is nothing important stored in it, then we suggest that you reformat your D drive so that you can use the free space for important files.

  3. Cannot access D drive since upgrading to Windows 10.

    Hello Judy,



    Thank you for replying quickly with the status of the issue.



    Please reply to few more questions:


    • Is the D: drive located on the same hard disk or on different hard disk?

    • Did you have any important data saved on the

    How to up d drive

    Not enough space on Recovery (DHow to up d drive :) drive.

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Please help me with the following:

    1. What is the make and model number of your Computer?


    Please note that recovery "D" is a partition on the hard drive which contains the image of the Operating system. You can use it to restore the computer back to factory settings. You should not attempt to store files in it.
    If you have any data saved on the D drive, I would suggest you to move it to an external drive and to free up some space, you can follow the steps provided in the article:
    Free up drive space in Windows 10.



    If you are using a HP computer, then you can refer to this article:
    HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - What is the Recovery (DHow to up d drive :) Hard Drive?



    Hope this helps.

    Let us know if you got the help you needed by clicking on Yes or No.
