  1. why am i being forced to have something called one drive on my computer


    i did not ask for this one drive, do not know or care to know how to use it, i was doing fine without it, 3 weeks ago microsoft put a partition on my computer an e drive, today i go in and there is a one drive which has taken over my desktop and now i cannot do anything, no coping, no pasting, no looking at my folders, nada,

    I feel if anything new or improved needs to be placed on MY computer, you know, the one I PAID FOR with the WINDOWS I PAID FOR, in the SERVER I PAY TO HAVE ON, it should be my choice not microsoft, and the virtual assistant isn't, now i find out, unless I PAY FOR HELP. Microsoft will have nothing to do with me or my computer problems, I do not know what to do, SS only goes so far in living expenses and a little extra like the computer running on a server, seems pointless any more.

    :)

  3. External Hard Drive "is not accessible"

    Hi Ridhwan,

    Sorry for the delayed response. Let me continue to assist you further.

    The issue here could have been due to fact that the Drive I:\ is encrypted or a flush drive. This forces the computer to not recognize the format and displays the error message. I suggest here to follow the steps below and check if it helps.

    • Press Windows Key + letter 'X.'
    • Choose 'Disk Management.'
    • Right click on the External drive and select 'Change Drive letter and Path names.'
    • Rename the drive letter i.e. remove letter I and say you replace it with letter
      J.
    • Restart the computer and check the issue status.

    Hope this helps. Please reply for further queries on this.

    How to Partiton a Hard Drive in Vista

    This is a way to get Vista to see another hard drive that is not associated with the OS. There is some times when your new hdd doesn't seem to want to work well with Vista. But, there is a solution in it.

    Open the Computer Management By doing these steps.
    • Click on the Start Button
    • Click on Control Panel
    • Click Administrative Tools
    • Double click on Computer Management
    You are now in the Navigation panel of the Computer Management.
    When in Computer Management, you then have to allow the new drive to be recognized.
    • Double click on Storage
    • Double click on Disk Management
    Now in the middle of your screen there is the layout of the Disk Drives that you have. The drives that are partitioned will show by the drive lettering. The others will just show up as having nothing at all in them. Below that there will be the Disk drives that are installed into the computer. You'll see that the primary one will all ways read as "Disk 0". Then you will have Disk 1 and so on. Under the Disks there will also see your CD-Rom drives.. If there is more then one, it will be labeled the same as Disk drives..

    On to the Partitioning of the drive in question.
    • Right Click on the drive
    • Click to format the drive or Enable Volume. There will be a series of windows that open up. This is Vista's formatting. Just go threw the windows, and make sure everything is the way you want it to happen.
    • Once the formatting is done, will take some time depending on the drive size.
    • Right click on the drive
    • Click on Mark the Partition as Active
    After you have done those steps, The drive will be up and running threw Vista.



    :Side Notes:
    If you are not the Administer to the Os, then you will have to enable it..
    You may also want to redo the drive lettering of it all. But, I really don't see a reason to do so. If you do, you have to redo drive paths and so forth.. A lot of work on something so small...
