Hello maria! Good job. You now have access to your new 750 GB and I'm no longer confused.

I'm not sure what the System Reserve partition is but think it's the hidden partition that lets you restore back to factory settings.

Happy computing!

Hello maria!!

 

Got a good nights sleep. I'm still confused about your disk E (150GB) It shows 1397.26GB and 687.36 free space.

That doesn't make sense to me.

Maybe SleepyDude will explain it. It has to be a mistake by windows putting the decimal in the wrong place. :oops:

I don't see nothing strange, Maria have a second Hard Disk installed, probably with size 1.5TB used for data most likely.

Ok Thanks SleepyDude!

That makes sense! Hadn't heard about another HD.

She sure has plenty of storage available. Where's the old HD, that was cloned??

Was it removed. Maybe it was in a closure???

Anyway, I'm not confused and it looks like the OP is good with every thing, and has a HD laying around with OS on it. That will make a nice back up!

yep guys I still have my 150GB HD as a back up. There is me and 3 others that use my desktop so between us we need a lot of storage for various bits and bobs. Thanks again to you both, maria
