Only you can tell us how it happened as we weren't there.
When you installed that 2nd hard drive it would have been blank. When you looked at the drive in Vista's Windows Explorer, it would have been empty.
What did you do then? You said you created a menu. I suspect you mean something else, like a set of folders and sub-folders, but if you do mean a menu, how did you do that?
How did you create the folders and sub-folders, and how did you copy the files across from the C drive to this new E drive?
You have to be careful, and be sure, before doing anything hasty. For example, if you open "Computer" either from an icon on your Desktop or from the Computer shortcut in your Start menu, this will show a Desktop location top left, which is the same as the Desktop you see when you are using your computer, (the Desktop display). So you may be seeing the same folders, but just from different perspectives.
This is what my own "Computer" looks like. What does yours look like?
Hello there, can anyone help me please
I've recently installed a second hard drive to act as a storage facility on my Packard Bell iMedia (Vista home basic) as I was running out of disc space. As I've created the menu for all my stuff and folders/subs Vista has doubled everything up so I now have a back-up of the back-up and only half the free space that I anticipated!. When I open windows explorer I now have THREE folders marked 'E:Storage/etc... - two under Desktop/Anyone and one under Computer/ along with my other drives C.D and F (two DVD drives) - SO I have three questions 1) how did this happen (cos I didn't do it!)? 2) how can I stop it from continuing and most importantly 3) how do I delete all the duplicated stuff?
Any suggestions gratefully acepted
