I have a faulty 2nd 150 gb HDD backup which I use for various music files etc, it is 10+ years old and is now on its last legs it seems to be stopping & restarting in a cycle.How do I disable it? as it is messing up the boot sequence and I am having to go through the repair/restart and all that carry on and I can't access the content as it 'hangs.' Task Manager cannot even end the process. The files are not important and I know I will remove the faulty drive eventually.
How do I disable it in the first instance?
...I did eventually remove the hard drive after copying all folders. It was an interim solution I was looking for in the first instance.
I didn't want to interrupt what I was doing as I was on a short timeline to deliver work I hadto complete.
All good and done now
