Your stance should be telling him.

Not asking him.

okay got it. Will mention that to him.






Okay this is strange. I took a look at my pc.


There is the OS (C) Drive. There is 131mb free of 28.7gb.


There is the New Volume (D) Drive. There is 230gb free of 232gb.


I also see there is a drive called ESP (F) Drive. It shows 475mb free of 495mb. First off, what in the world is this? I'm pretty positive this F drive was not there yesterday. When i click on this, it says you dont have permission to access this folder. But it does say click continue to access this folder. But i did not click on this.


I'm pretty close to positive this was not there after he swapped the hard drive and also yesterday when i noticed the issue with the C drive getting full.

That's put there by Windows 10. It's standard and OK.

POSITIVE, adj. Mistaken at the top of one's voice.

Let me know if you need help and post a screenshot of your Disk Management here if you do.

He posted a shot of DM ages ago

He`s going to get the OS transferred to his Samsung ssd and put the 1 TB hard drive back in.

Or at least that`s his plan, hopefully this 32 GB ssd, or whatever it is, is the same size as a conventional 2.5" ssd, or he`ll end up putting everything back the exact way it was on day 1.

I'm confused what you mean here. What do you mean put the 1tb hard drive back in?

Now you guys are confusing me so much. Sonic tells me to have the guy transfer the windows 10 from the 32gb ssd to the 250gb ssd.


Why is the 1tb hard drive even mentioned here? Sonic never mentioned anything about this. Do i need to bring the 1tb back with me to the repair shop?
