  1. WIndows update can not use second hard drive - c drive full


    yesterday I discovered my sons laptop had not updated since v1909. It has a 128G SSD and a 1TB HDD, and the SSD was almost full - not enough space to update.I tried running the update assistant, and clearing space, but could not release enough. The update assistant offered to use an external driveBut the 1TB drive was almost empty. Why cant an INTERNAL second drive be used for the update?

    :)

    Maxtor Hard Drive Beep

    Maxtor drive beeps

    Have a similiar situation using a DiamondMax Plus 8, 20GB Mfg Date 4/15/03. Drive used as a second system drive. Drive is recognized in boot menu but not in drive list. Drive is always connected. Computer started locking up for several seconds at a time. Chkdsk on drives and couldn't find that drive. Removed drive from bay to make sure connections were ok and heard the beeping. Shutdown and restart and never got to windows screen. Restarted several times then saw drive in boot menu and Windows loaded but Maxtor not in drive menu. When recognized in boot menu, computer will start but beeps and is not found.

    Tried kicking it real hard but no improvement. Any suggestions?

    Windowed Hard Drives

    On the contrary, showing off "slow tech" by adding a window to a hard drive is a "dumb" idea. Do you really want to be showing off a whole "7200-10000 RPM of power" or would you rather show off a plain SSD drive? (If you really desire to "show off")

    Adding any window to any drive is just stupid. I just suggested an easier option for you since manufactures don't put windows on the latest hard drives.
