You can do either, Create a Download folder on the second hard drive and when you download a file you can direct the download to the second hard disk download folder.
You can also move (cut and Paste) your data files/folders to the second hard disk.
If you have not done any hard disk maintenance then your C drive may be full of junk and temporary files. Disk maintenance will remove these files and free up disk space.

Harddisk maintenance should be carried once a month. If you have a D drive then repeat these steps on this drive too.

Drive Will Not Open


This dilemna happens frequently, especially with machines running Windows 8. Recently, I had 2 hard drives that just randomly show as RAW disks. It sounds like you have important data you need to salvage, but ultimately, the drive will need to be reformatted in order to once again work with your operating system.
You have two options to recover your data:
1. Download a linux based operating system called UBUNTU
www.ubuntu.com
It can be installed on a disc, and run entirely off the disk without affecting your computer. Magically, Linux operating systems struggle less with accessing difficult drives. You may be able to simply run Ubuntu off of the cd, plug in your drive and simply copy and paste the important data onto a different backup media.
Option 2:
Download EASEUS recovery tool for free.
http://www.partition-tool.com/download.htm
Using this program, you can scan the disk for bad sectors, and you can set the program to repair the disk, making it accessible. Even after, the disk may show as a group of scattered disorganized folders, but you should be able to find the information, move it to another media and then re-format for a brighter future.
Good luck,

How do i fix an f3-f200-0002 error on my lap tap???


Step 1:
A recovery disc is a CD provided by a computer manufacturer that will assist the owner in reinstalling Windows and system device drivers in the event of a hard drive failure. If your original Toshiba recovery disc has been misplaced or damaged, it may be difficult to get a replacement disc except through the mail from Toshiba Product Support. There is a free download work around available, however, if waiting for delivery by mail is not convenient.

Find a Windows Setup Disk Find an original setup disk for the version of Windows you need. If your COA is for Windows Vista Home, you must find a Windows Vista Home version setup disc. You can borrow a disc from a friend, or buy a used disc online. There is no source for a free download of Windows. Even though you use a friend's setup disc, you will use your unique COA keycode to activate the Windows installation. b> Reinstall Windows b> Reinstall Windows using an authentic setup disc and your keycode. In some cases, Windows will locate and load drivers for your Toshiba laptop automatically, or at least provide substitute drivers until you can Install the correct drivers. b> Reinstall the Drivers b> Use the flash drive or disk you burned to restore the device drivers to your Toshiba. It is a good idea to start with the Ethernet or wireless adapter so you can connect to the Internet to find more suitable drivers online and activate your copy of Windows. Work through all the driver install packages to restore drivers for Ethernet, wireless, BIOS, sound cards, video cards, optical drives, touchpad functions, keyboard controls and other devices. b> Plan For The Future b> Make an attempt to replace your recovery disc through Toshiba. Otherwise, consider creating a perfect copy or "ghost" copy of your restored operating system and device drivers for future use. Use an external hard drive for this creation, not a partition on your current hard drive.

I have never heard this issue before. You probably have a lager issue then what can be resolved here and might face future issue in the future. Is this the only game you are having issues with?

Seeing that you mentioned you have purchased a hard drive then I would recommend you install the game to your hard drive and try play after that. This will resolve any issues possably of your disk drive possably getting hung up during gameplay.

follow these instructions to get your game installed on your hard drive:

Install Xbox 360 games on your hard drive from a game disc Note Installing an Xbox 360 game on a hard drive requires between 4 and 8 gigabytes (GB) of free disc space.
  1. Insert the game disc into the disc drive.

    ddopen360s.jpg

    Note After you insert the disc, the default option is to automatically start the game. If the game starts, exit the game, and return to the Xbox Dashboard.

  2. From the Xbox Dashboard, go to My Xbox.
  3. Select the game you want to install.
  4. Press Y on your controller.
  5. Select Install to Hard Drive.

    A progress indicator appears while your game is being installed on your hard drive.
Notes
  • Installing an Xbox 360 game might take several minutes.
  • Multidisc game? Install each disc to your hard drive.

My 2 tb wd hard drive comes on, but the computer doesn't show it's hooked up. I've unplugged the usb and tried 3 ports and still nothing. Any assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated


If the hard drive came with a disc that disc probably has a driver for your new hard drive, if not go to the manufacture's website here (http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?level1=3&lang=en) and look your hard drive and download its specific driver.

To check to see if you have one or two hard drives, go to the BIOS, if the BIOS detects one hard drive then your hard drive has two partitions which is the C and D drives.
To create a single partition C drive or make the C driver larger size and the D driver by a equal smaller size then you need a program like Partition Magic.

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

Hi,

There is some thing wrong with file system on your hard disk drive.
Just unplugg it and wait for 1 min, Plugin again.

1) Go to Application -> Utility -> Disk Utility

2) You can see all the drives connected to the machine.

3) Select the drive from left side which acts as external and click on Repair disk button.
