2 Hard Drives?

By BlessTheFall

  1. Under "Computer" on my acer computer i have 2 different hard drives. One named "ACER (C: )" and the other one named "DATA (D: )" What is the difference between these 2? Also, my "ACER (C: )" is getting full and i only have about 2 GB free out of 70. When this gets full will my computer aumtomaticly start saving things on my other hard drive? My "DATA (D: ) hard drive has 70.1 Gb free out of 70.4 so theres bassicly nothing saved on here.

    Thanks

    Is it a pc or a laptop?

    If its a lappy then its probably 2 partitions on the same hard drive and software like partition magic can adjust the partition sizes.

    If its a pc with 2 hard drives then you will have to move stuff from one drive to the other as windows will not begin writing to one drive when the other is full.
