Two D/Drives in my PC & i need to use the larger one now !
Hi, Running xp pro..Home built PC...my brother in law built PC some years back & it has been great, but now need more space !(and would like to resolve without keep bugging my b/law). I have a 16gb h/drive which is the current master "C" drive, i think you call it! i also have a larger 38gb drive installed in PC "F" drive. I have copied the smaller drive using xxclone to the G drive, but am now not sure how i make the G drive my main master drive ? does the drive have to be physically changed (jumpers i think) or can this be done via Bios ? I don't mind having a go at anything but need a step by step guide ! if anyone can point me in the right direction i would be grateful....Thank you.....Steve
If your two drives were set up as "C" master, and "F" as slave and you have cloned "C" to "F", now you must make "F" the master by changing the jumper on the back of it, and fitting it in place of the original "C" drive. You could then change the jumper on the back of original "C" drive to slave and fit it in place of the original "F" drive, you could then "format this drive and use it as you wish, it;s now an empty drive. The two changed drives shouls show up as "C" and "F" but you may have to increase the size of your now bigger drive (partition) as the cloning may have just copied the original drive at the same size.
