How do I set up an external hard drive so it acts as an expansion drive?

by on June 13, 2010

Q: I have a Seagate FreeAgent external hard drive. It was working great for a while, but now my computor says I have insuffienent disk space. Theres still 350GB’s on the external, but it won’t let me download anything anymore. How do I set it up so it goes back to acting as an expansion drive.

    Microsoft has some instructions here:

    However, you’ll be best off just leaving the drives separate and just moving your downloads to the FreeAgent. Otherwise if one drive fails you have a very hard time gettign any data back, and you also won’t be able to just plug the Free Agent into a second computer and access the files on it.
