Or what would I do?
Since I don't run your PC, I can't guess for sure what happened. But I could as a test unplug that second SSD and see if the machine boots OK. If it does than I am free to delete what I want from that drive.
I have Windows 7. So, the trouble started a couple days ago. I downloaded an update for Avast! Free Antivirus. After updating, it asked to restart the computer - I clicked OK. Upon restarted, Windows 7 wouldn't boot at all. After some experimenting, I determined it was probably a driver issue (I couldn't even start Safe Mode, so it must've been a core driver). I used an old system image stored on an external hard drive to restore my primary SSD. It worked, but now the other SSD that I have also has a mysterious copy of windows that never existed previously. It's taking up a lot of room, and I'm fairly certain it isn't being used at all. I want to delete it to free up space (the secondary SSD is dedicated only to video games) but I don't want to screw anything up. Can I delete the mysterious copy of Win7 from my secondary SSD without any issues? Pictures below:
As you can see, it looks as if Progenitor (the original SSD) is still the drive running the OS (I assume that's what the Windows logo next to it means).
The next two images seem to show that Windows is still fully installed and operational on Progenitor (the original SSD that was restored by the system image on Eddy (the external hard drive)).
This is where I find things get weird. While I distinctly remember the system image restoration saying that it was restoring drive C (Progenitor), a seemingly-full installation of Windows also seems to have been put onto Legacy (the secondary, gaming-dedicated SSD). It's taking up a lot of space, and I don't think that it's actually being used, but I don't want to delete it and screw something up horribly. What possible explanation could there be for this to be happening? I'm absolutely baffled.
I am completely sure that there was never a copy of Windows 7 on Legacy SSD before. Before the restoration to the system image, that disk only ever had two folders: "Steam" and another service, maybe Origin or Uplay, I can't remember. It definitely never had Windows before. I've had Progenitor as my OS SSD for much longer than I've owned Legacy. I cannot possibly fathom why Windows was put onto Legacy, especially since the system image specifically stated that it was restoring Drive C (Progenitor), and everything else is exactly the way I expected it to be (same wallpaper, files, etc from 6 months ago). I want to free up space on Legacy, but fear that by messing with it I might horribly mess something up. What do you think? Any advice?
