  • I have a Dell Dimension 4700, with an 80 gig internal hard drive. I just purchased a 500 gig external hd, and was told that I could make my external drive my main drive, until I can afford a larger internal drive. Could someone walk me thru how to do this?

    However, no, you cannot make the external drive you main drive. You can copy or move data files to that drive in Windows Explorer, but you cannot move programs or the operating system.
