Yes, it can be used that way. Do you already have an operating system installed on your first drive?

Disk can be formatted after installing operating system on the first disk or prior to installation if you intend to install the operating system on this disk.

Cloned full small drive to large drive now both full


You might have the option of Defragmenting it as some files might be unorganised and also by freeing some space on thee disk by simply some files and data which yo don't need or might have cloned themselves repeatedly, that is Duplication of a same file or data and/or multiple amount of files.And if you think that you simply don't need the files then in that case simply format it in the respective file system whichever might be compatible,say,cdfs,FAT32,NTFS, and so on.

Seagate sata hdd error


Quick format removes files from the partition, but does not scan the disk for bad sectors, while a normal format does that. That's why the formatting takes so much longer.
You should definitely check your drive for bad sectors by issuing "chkdsk /r" in the command line, which scans for and attempts the recovery of bad sectors.

If there is a bad sector somewhere, your system might crash at any time and it might be at a very inconvenient moment.
If you find bad sectors, you should consider replacing the drive

Seagate barracuda + usb harddrive enclosure cant access hard dive


First, neither of the links work. The amazon shows a power adapter and the Seagate defaults to their home page. But I think I get the idea. You purchased a usb drive enclosure and a new hard drive and now it doesn't work.

The problem is that the hard drive has not been initiated, formatted or assigned a drive letter.
Plug in the drive
Click on the Start button
Right click on Computer
Select Manage
A screen opens, click on Disk Management
All the drives known and unknown will appear on the right.
Find the drive that says unknown, right click over the text and select Initialize Disk.
When done, right click the blank space to the right labelled Unallocated and select new simple volume then follow the steps to format and assign a drive letter.
If you are only going to be using this drive on this computer then format ntfs, if it maybe be connected to other devices including Mac, you may want to use fat32 or exfat.
Whats the Difference Between FAT32 exFAT and NTFS

You don' t say what OS or even type of computer (PC, Mac, Windows XP, 98, vista etc) you are running, or whether the drive has been used before. If it's a new drive then it probably needs formatting, so you can allow the OS to do that. If it contains data that you need then DO NOT allow the OS to format it.

If you know it is formatted & contains data, then it sounds like the OS is not recognising the format. Windows 98 typically won't recognise NTFS disks formatted on Windows XP for example or Linux Ext3/4 format disks won't be recognised by Windows. In the latter case, you can download a free driver which will do that for you - google Ext 4 and Windows.
