Hey people I'm a little stuck on formatting my second hard drive. I have a sata 500 g.b. hard drive and it was partitioned in half. my main system runs on the c' drive but is almost maxed out due to downloading movies and music etc... i want to format my d' drive so i can utilize the rest of the drive. when i say to format it asks for the volume label ?? I'm just getting into this so its a little over my head. Where do i find this, and do i require more information??? all geeks please help.

the volume label is the label of what you want the new partition to be called. to format the drive, go to disk management. go to start, then right click on my computer, then select manage. in the left pane, select disk management. scroll down the the lower half of the right pane pane and select the unpartitioned space, you will need to select the open space, the right space to the right of where it says disk x. right click on that space and select format. from there it should be straight forward. just keep the default values and you should be set.
