I recently added a 320GB 7200 drive to my XP Laptop in the number 1 position, and switched the original 80GB drive to position 2. I used Acronis 2013 to clone the new drive and everything started up and worked out great. I'm only left with one question mark. I'm learning, but am always running into some seemingly simple things I don't understand.
I thought I could use control panel to remove programs from the old (now F drive) to make room for file storage, etc. I cautiously opened F drive, went to control panel and remove programns, and removed a mprogram that was of little consequence. I then closed F drive, opened C drive, remove proigrams, and the program was missing from the new C drive??? I repeated this three times with same results. I know the answer has got to be simple, but I don't understand. If these drives are connected like this I'll never get to clean F drive, and it is full.
