Pleased to read that you built the system and all went well

Is this an internal or external drive - if external is it shown as disk in device manager or only under usb heading
Is it shown in disk management
that is right click computer and click manage
click disk management in left pane

If it is shown their and the drive is new, select and right click, click format NTFS, create primary partition - whole drive unless you wish to parttion into allocated capacities.
Then check again

see this for further information

Hey again. I thought I was done for sure now but it appears since I installed the HDD (E:\) I can no longer save things on the SSD that is my C:\ I guess there is a simple fix to this? Since it was working before I mean. What am I doing wrong :)

Send me a screenshot please of disk management

If C was the SSD
how many optical drives do you have
D would most likely be one of them
You are generally best allowing windows to assign drive letters by accepting the default choice.

I have one optical drive which is the D:\

When I formated the HDD I was asked to assign a path and E:\ seemed like the most logical choice.

OK there does not appear to be any reason for the problem here.

What is it that you cannot now save to C and what if anything is the error message displayed.

Is E drive now shown in My Computer and accessible


If you copy a file say a jpeg from C - Libraries if you are using it - my pictures, can you then save that copy in another location on C

I tried saving a simple .jpeg from google for example and it says I'm not authorized to do so because I need to be an administrator or something. I am administrator though ofc so I don't really know what's up. I tried copying a .jpeg from one location to another on the C:\ and that worked. I can also create new folders.

Providing E was the default choice it certainly is not that problem.
I thought at first that you had attmepted to change drive letters and although you cannot change the system partition or active partition letter using Disk management, changing drive letters is never really a good idea.

However to return to the problem when you right click the jpeg image on google and click save picture as - Where are you trying to save it to

[attachment=58418:Untitled.jpg]

on the evidence at the momment I think it is a coincidence I do not think it is connected with the installation of the other HDD

I'm trying to save it to the anywhere on the C:\ no place works. And I don't know if it's connected, but I haven't tried saving anything on the C:\ until after I installed the HDD.

1. Since you installed the HDD have there been any updates downloaded.


2. Create a folder on your desktop - right click the desktop, click new and create folder - google images for instance
reboot and see if they will save to there.
IF NOT go 3

3. Windows button
type in search
cmd
when it appears above right click and click run as admin
at cmd prompt
type
net user administrator /active:yes

exit cmd prompt by typing
exit

reboot and try again in that account - password is blank unless you set it.

1. Yes there have been several updates.

2. Yes saving on the desktop, and in folders on the desktop works perfectly fine.
