Hi, i'm gonna buy a second hd to sit alongside my present 60 gig offering but looking through past posts it appears i can only use it for data . I was hoping to get a large-ish drive and use it for games only cos i'm always uninstalling games due to lack of space.
I know its a no brainer but i'd be more than happy if someone could point me in the right direction.
Many TIA.

When you load a game just direct the setup to your new drive but it will still load some files on C:\ and it will write to the registry so if you had to format C:\ at a later date you would have to reload your games
