now, when i load windows, it still shows the old 450 gb western digital drive, and shows me how much space is used on it and how much is left. when i install anything, it says it is installing it on the old western digital drive.
when i go to start -> computer -> manage i see the old hard drive and its partitions. i also see the new drive, and it says 240 gb unassigned.
i can see the corsair under my devices. so the computer is seeing it. but windows thinks the old hard drive is still in the computer.
not sure if this is impacting performance or not. is windows utilizing the ssd speed? i have no idea how much space is left on my hard drive.
anybody seen this before?
