SSD + HDD setup. - Page 2

Because I want to get rid of it? Get all my space back on the HDD, clear up old data. I wanted to start all over. Why does it matter anyway?

Well, I just downloaded a program called Killdisk and I'm now wiping data off my HDD. So I guess that's that.

Because lots of people have come here with the impression that they have to do this, and so I wanted to make sure that you weren't under that false impression. It's more common than you'd think.

You dont have to format, the problem you faced was common. Im assuming your HDD had Windows on it, now your SSD also has windows on it. Even if you set the same user name in both copies they are for all intents and purposes different users, so you are running into permissions issues trying to change the file system or access the disk. If you didnt have Windows on the HDD prior, youd be able to format it from the new install of windows without issue.
