Your C drive is the heart of your data. That will be where your operating system and program files will be located. If you want to store more data, adding another drive will work just fine, internal or external. The letter will be different so you can tell where your program files are and where your personal files are. If you need more space for programs you will want to change out your C drive for a bigger hard drive.

You can add another hard drive, but it won't double your C drive; it will just show up as another hard drive.

However, using a program like Acronis, you can hook up the 2nd hard drive, make an exact image of your c drive on the new drive, then connect the new drive in the old drive's place and there you have added more space on your c drive as it will automatically become the c drive.

My Maxtor "black Armor" 160


Beeping is a certain sign of hard disk failure.
You have no other option but to replace the drive.

Consider price rather than capacity, a larger drive may well be currently cheaper.

By SEPARATE I am taking that to mean an external drive and not an internal mounted drive. If IT IS external the same power supply should work fine as the drive motors are the same in both models. IF IT IS Internal then the question is whether your power supply is molex or ATA.

My computer cannot dectect my maxtor one touch III 320GB


well, 2 options, your hard drive is not working in that case, just get a internal hard drive which is serial and open the case for the maxtor and plug the drive inside the case. its cheaper to buy the inter hard drive, then to replace the external hard drive.

Maxtor Internal EIDE hard drive dip switch settings.


I assume you have two IDE controllers? IDE1 and IDE2, I'll try to help, the primary HD needs to have the pin set to primary and the secondary set to slave, if you're running both of these drives off of the same ribbon cable. You may have to go into your BIOS settings and check to make sure the Primary HD is the WD drive.

When all users have been deleted, click on add.
Under the "Enter the object names to select", type "everyone"; click OK.
now, under "Permissions for Everyone", click the check box for "Full Control" for "Allow". Now all the boxes for Allow should be checked.
