My C drive copied my external harddrive. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Acer aspire mini tower original win 8.1 took the free win 10 home update 2016. I have a hitachi lifestudio 1TB external HD. When plugged in my harddrive reads twice. Once as drive G and again in the main drive C. The problem is it increases my used space in the C drive. How do I make the c drive not to copy the external drive or remove it from C without deleting the G drive at the same time ?

    I'd ask Hitachi.

    You could also ask in the Windows forum on Microsoft Community.

  • Hi,

    Is some backup/copy/sync software running when you plug the external drive to your computer?
    Please check in Task Manager if such software is running?

    Regards,

    The TechNet Sandbox forum is designed for users to try out the new forums functionality.

    As it's off-topic here, I am moving the question to the Where is the forum for... forum.
