You would have to install an OS on D. You should get a dual boot option then just choose which OS you want to boot into.

Another option is to install the OS on D with C removed / disconnected. C will then just become the spare.

Thank you Jeff S. for your solution of releasing my ext hard drive by merely changing the drive letter assigned to it - simple solution that did the trick immediately like you said. I am so appreciative. I have been looking for 3 days to find the proper solution - tried others that did not work - yours was great. Thank you so much!

I have two hard drives on my computer one is nearly full the other has on a few things on it, but i don't know how to transfer things from the full one to the empty one


Just simply copy any big folders you have on your full drive onto anywhere else on the empty one. Remember to start installing things to the empty one too. Right Click>Copy>Paste onto empty drive.

Start>Computer> You should see your two drives.

My local disc C is full and local disc D is empty, why?


Hi

Thank you for your query

The predicament you are in is called hard drive partioning (as long as anther hard drive hasnt been fitted in). Essentially you take one physical hard drive and you break it into 2 virtual drives thus the C and D, this is generally done to allow all system files to reside on the C drive and your personal files on the D drive

Information used- capacity used and available


Re: deleting the files, did you drag the files into the trash bin and then empty it? The files don't actually leave your drive until you 'Empty Trash' on your mac's doc. Hope this helps, not sure about your startup disc problem.
