How do you add another hard drive in your computer?
To add another hard drive, Look at the jumper pins on the back of the new hard drive you wish to use as the secondary hard drive. Move the Jumper on those pins from MASTER to SLAVE to make the drive a slave drive and work under the primary hard drive. Now, open the computer after you have unplugged it and install the secondary hard drive, and make sure to hook it up to the IDE cable that is already hooked up to the primary hard drive, and hook it up only to the middle connector. The end connector of the IDE cable should already be in the primary hard drive so don't unplug it, just connect the middle connector of the cable that's already plugged into the primary drive to the secondary drive. Now, connect the power plug to the newly installed hard drive, plug in computer, and boot up. It should work just fine, and you'll gain more memory with that other hard drive!
Yes, you can add another heard drive to your motherboard and have two.
Removing the hard drive will not cause any damage. However, unless you add another hard drive, or have some other device you can boot off of, the computer will be effectively useless.
It is best to wipe the hard drive before you remove it from the first computer and do a new install for the new computer. Then add your operation system.
yes if you have enough room in your computer.
It means you are running out of hard drive space. You have two options. 1 is to get a bigger hard drive. 2 is to use the hard drive you have as a master and add another hard drive as a slave, either way looks like you need another drive. If you have alot on your computer that you don't use, try deleting it. That will also help. Good Luck!!
Decide what type of hard drive or memory to add.
Yes, if you are speaking of the hard drives that you put into your computer. Your computer usually comes with one hard drive, but if you need another one, you can install another one you can buy at a computer store. Normally computers come with 2-3 extra hard drive slots in case you'd like to add more.
No matter what the size of hard drive you have, you will eventually have to replace it. I built a computer in September 06. It had a 250 GB hard drive. I am probably the average computer user; I use mine for homework, a little bit of gaming, surfing the web, some DVD editing, and msn. My hard drive is about half full by now (June 07). I recently just added another 250 GB hard… Read More
An external drive is one that is not in -side the computer- It is a Disk (hard) drive or can also be a CD drive which is connected by a cable to the computer. The connection is usually by SCSI, USB, or SATA(eSATA) connection. An external drive allows you to add a drive to the computer you are using - to expand storage or add a CD drive without actually having to open the computer… Read More

It depends on what type of computer you have, but generally, yes. If you have a desktop computer and it has a single hard drive, then more than likely it has a second slot inside where you can add a second hard drive. There will already be an IDE cable inside that allows you to hook the second hard drive up to your computer. If you have a laptop, then you probably can't add a… Read More
Generally, that would be what a server is used for. If you have an old computer laying around, you can probably reformat it and add hard drives, then install either Linux or Windows Home server.
If you add an additional HD to your computer, the second drive becomes the slave drive because the computer must boot from the Master drive
an external hard drive
Not RAM, the random access memory must be installed in the dedicated slots. You can add secondary memory (like another hard drive) in an expansion slot.
You cannot add more space without adding a hard drive, unless part of the hard drive you already have is not in use (not partitioned) which is unlikely unless you did so on purpose.
It depends on what computer model you have. Some motherboards won't let you add a drive internally. Some cases aren't large enough or have an empty bay for a 2nd drive. The easiest, fastest, most failsafe way to do it is to get an external USB hard drive. Just plug it into your USB port and you're ready to go. It will show up in My Computer or Windows Explorer with a new drive letter… Read More
you can't add them together because the connectors are different.
(a) Extra storage space.... for your files and programs (b) Speed up your computer... by using the extra hard-drive space as 'virtual' memory
After connecting your USB hard drive to your computer and it loads what it needs to run. It will act as another drive on you computer, you can copy to it the same way in which you copy files around your computer. Right Click the file. Click Copy. Open your drive using My Computer. Right Click an empty space. Click Paste. Another way to do this is via Windows Media Player. # Set up your… Read More
When you add software or programs to your computer, it will have less free space available than previously. Your hard drive has a fixed capacity, and you should always leave some free space available. As you add data, you should defragment the drive from time to time.
You can add as many harddrives as you want to. As long as there is enough room.
You cannot add space to an iPod Touch hard drive, or any other iPod hard drive. The hard drive capacity is set and cannot be changed.
A local disk is any hard drive or disk partition on the computer in question. So in order to "create" one, you need to either add a new hard drive, or partition the existing one.
how much would it cost to add a Blu Ray drive to my computer?
No, you can't have 2 at once on a Ps3 but you can backup your saves and media to a memory stick or Fat32 formatted external drive and use a larger drive, for instructions go on youtube: . Or, you could just use an external Hard Disk Drive and save stuff there.

I have a 40 gig hard drive with operating systems and some storage. I also have a second hard drive just for storage. Can I add a third hard drive to increase storage?
Probably, but it would have to be an external hard drive. The above is incorrect. some modem motherboards have provisions for 4 ide drives, and 4 sata, with add on cards you can add even more, as long as your PSU is big enough, I have one computer here that is successfully running 16 drives in it. most of my computers run around 4, so yes you are fine to run 3
It has a 1TB hard drive already, and there is space to add one other hard drive.
It can be..... But I use a maxtor 500gigabyte external hard drive, and it makes a world of difference. It has boosted my ram, and prosscessing speed, and I can take it to work, plug it into my computer there, with all my programs, so i can add in what I did at home instead of lugging around my laptop. I recommend external hard drives more than just adding a 2nd hard drive.
If you're computer was fast at first and now it is slowing down the main reason it too many files on the hard drive. These can be junk files that built up over time, such as tmp files. Run Disk Cleanup then Defragment your hard drive and that will get rid of those junk files and should make your computer run faster. Another thing you can do is add more memory. That will also make… Read More
Having more than one hard drive is just a computer configuration option. You can add multiple hard drives for purpose of adding more storage capacity or redundancy. - Neeraj Sharma
with a USB or an external memory drive.
When attempting to load a new program a message is received saying there is not enough memory can you add more memory to your computer?
There are two main types of memory in a PC, RAM and hard drive. If the error happens when you're trying to install a new program for the first time, this is most likely due to not enough hard drive memory available. You could either add another hard drive or delete unused data off the current drive. If the error shows when you're just trying to open and run the program, then it's most likely… Read More
First of all ... Megabytes is a unit of information used to measure the information capacity of various components in a computer. Your question could mean many things. I would assume you either want to know how to add memory (simultaneously running programs) to your computer, or how to add to your computers total storage capacity (file storage). As for memory, you can add to its capacity by buying RAM, make sure that you have… Read More
Do you need install a new hard drive to your old computer or add more memory or both to get it going faster?
Add more RAM. That is the best way. Adding another harddrive would have little effect. Make sure to have plenty of free disk space on your harddrive so Windows can use virtual memory.
Open the case put the hard drive in. If you have a newer PC and a sata hard disk drive connect it with the mother board. Usually the sata wire, have to be purchased separately, well at least i did. If its is an older hard drive you will find the IDE connectors inside the PC. I have three Hard disk drives on my PC, and cant add more. There is a certain amount of… Read More
The two solutions for a slow computer are: 1. Upgrade your hardware - add RAM, get a larger hard drive 2. Perform regular maintenance using a comprehensive optimization software suite.
If it turns back on, always go to safe mode or boot off a recovery disk for Macintosh computers, copy all important files to an external drive, delete all files on the computer, reboot, add all files on the hard drive to the computer again.
The percentage depends on the size of the hard drive. You would need to know the entire size of the hard drive to do the simple math. 4000000kb equals 4Gb.... now if your had a 100gb hard drive, that would add up to 4%.
No. The PlayStation 1 does not come with a hard drive, does not have an expansion bay for one, and no official add-ons provide such functionality.
Go into my computer, click add and remove programs towards the top, and uninstall programs you no longer need. If you can't free up enough space by doing this consider adding a second hard drive.

Can you resize drive C without reinstalling windows i want drive c have bigger volume so it is possible to just delete another drive for example drive D and add that volume to the drive C?
Drive C is a commonly used name which refers to the main location of storage contents on a hard drive. Hard drives have a pre-set amount of storage space, and there are two ways to increase storage space on a hard drive: 1. Purchase a new hard drive. In order to transfer necessary files from one hard drive to another, an intermediate storage medium is usually required before data from the original hard drive can… Read More
application is another word for program ( computer context ).a program is installed from an installation CD of that program or downloaded from the internet either directly or saved to the hard drive then installed a program is uninstalled usually from the control panel / uninstal programs ( windows Xp ) vista is slightly different
In order to you'd have to take the pictures from the computer and put it on a jump drive- usb drive - flash drive.
1, Increased storage space 2. 2nd drive can be used to mirror the 1st drive in a RAID configuration, increasing data transfer speeds 3. 2nd drive can be used to mirror the 1st drive to prevent data loss in the event of a hardware failure.
