Well it is probably 2 drives because that would be sort of a weird partition. I would just install things on the second drive just change the install path from C:/ to whatever the empty drives name is. It doesn't really matter because 140 gb is alot of space so the only way you could run out of space or not be able to install on it is if the drive has another OS installed on it like linux.

Also heres a tip when writing a post make sure you write in a way that people can read and not full of gramatical errors and mispelled words.

Ok so you are asking if you can move files from one hard drive to the other, right. You can move files from one hard drive to the other. Applications i would uninstall and then install them on the other hard drive. Back up the data that the program might have saved in the program's file folders. When you install all you have to do is say that you want to install it on the other hard drive when it asks what directory you want it to go in. I would leave all of the Windows files and things that are important on the original hard drive, b/c if you move those than the computer won't work.

What r you talking about i never said i he wanted to move files from the secondary to the primary. I rad his post it said his primary was full and he wanted to make sapce and want to know if you could move files from one to the other.

...can i move memory from the full one to the empty one...

There's no such thing as "memory" on a hard drive (unless you're talking about the virtual memory swapfile). With that in mind, could you more clearly explain what you mean in your quote above?

ehh just forget it no biggie

Erm, OK- but knowing exactly what you meant could help other members who might have a question similar to yours and pull up this thread in a forum search.

I bought a new computer yesterday and i had a relative install windows, he installed 2 harddrives on it and said i should save everything on the new one. The problem is all the original files are on /C so i tried copying it but it didnt copy all files. I am very confused, i hope i get an awnser to this even tho it was posted 2 years ago, please tell me what i am supposed to do to use the new harddrive like i used the old one and whats the point in having 2...

Hi please help me,

First of all- welcome to DaniWeb :)

We ask that members not tag their questions on to a thread previously started by another member (regardless of how similar your problem might seem). Not only does it divert the focus of the thread away from the original poster's problem, but it also makes it less likely that you yourself will get the individual attention that you need.

Please start your own thread and post your question there. When you do, please give us as much specific info as possible regarding the problem (exact error messages, system specs, troubleshooting steps you've already tried, etc.).

For a full description of our posting guidelines and general rules of conduct, please see this page:
