Can I ask one more question?

My C,D and E drivers are labeled as LOCAL DISK, however new driver is labaled as NEW UNIT... It seems to be functioning ok, but is there a way I can make it appear as LOCAL DISK as well?


Just rename it inside My computer.
:D

Ah I got the hank of it guys thanks to you both once more and another +rep

 

Man to this date I knew pretty much nothing about HDD or SSDs to be honest.

 

I actually renamed all 4 disk drives to Windows, Gaming, Gaming 2 and Multimedia now everything is peachy. thumb.gif

I picked up a 1TB WD Cavier Blue.

 

I heard Black was nicer but noiser and a bit more expensive.

 

I will just store games on the new HDD, former HDD (Samsung) will be for multimedia.


Edit : Since I do a bit of game capturing, I decided to capture games to the HDD where the game is not on.

You've picked up the correct drive. Its faster and yet quieter than the WD 1TB black because it uses a single 1TB platter! I have two of them in RAID and they're great! Good buy thumb.gif
