cleaning up 2nd internal hard drive that was previously the OS drive; also DVD drive disappears
Posted on 2013-10-29
I recently installed a new SSD drive and loaded Windows 7 from scratch. Then I installed the orig hard drive as a 2nd drive, everything seems ok.
But to clean up the now 2nd hard drive, it is generally safe to delete everything under the "Windows" folder ? I don't see anything in there that I need particularly, but just want to check.
There is also F:\drive which says "Factory Image", has one folder, "Recovery", nothing else, It has 12 GB total, 1.65 GB free. Is there a way I can reclaim that ?
Also, when my computer goes to sleep, upon waking up the "D:\" drive (DVD) is missing . . . if I re-boot it always shows up again . . . I was inside the PC adding the new SSD drive and putting the orig HD as 2nd drive, but didn't really mess with the DVD drive / connection.
