Open it up an look!

Failing that, have you it set up as a mirror raid system where by everything on the first disk is mirrored onto the second (a form of backup)?

The pc is as delivered not changed anything, waste of a 250gb drive to use as some sort of backup.

Did you request any RAID mirroring?

Did you look into the machine to see how many hard disks? Dell are very easy to open and look at.

No she didnt request raid, i thought it would just come with 2 250gb drives, other than one HD in My Computer & it showing Array in device manager i cant see any other drives.

I might have to pop back later in the week as you say & have a look inside the case...thanks for your help Diodorus Siculus.
