Good day,

 

I have a issue here I just recently reinstalled windows and with out any drives attached besides my M.2 drive,

but the drive my PC the 2TB drive continuously acts as it's the C: Drive and cause loads of problems,

I have looked around for information on the matter by cannot seem to find a fix to changing it back to it's original place as a data drive and not a main drive.

 

DIsk 0 in the task manager is the 2TB drive and the C: drive is the NVME drive but I cannot see how to change this?

 

To add windows wasn't added on this system.

 

Kind regards

Bradley

Change the drive letter under Disk Management

(it's under control panel and admin tools, then computer management)

To add on this thread as you can see the 2TB system has boot information on it,

I have tried disabling the system from booting on the Bios but the harddrive keeps acting as the main device?

Thank you for all your assistance I found out it's the actual drive causing the whole system to slow down,

as the drive is running at 100% and then causing slow boots and slow restarts I turned it off and system is working perfectly need to now get a new harddrive @_@
