Hi.My first time posting and the problem I have is my pc uses a sata solid state drive of 275 GB.And has a 3TB drive installed as well.But when I tried to download a load of photos it said my drive did not have enough room.(this was the small solid state drive 275 GB) How can I get the pc to use the large drive.? I know there is data on the large drive I checked ..I thought it would automatically transfer date to it but no so I do not know where to go from here.Any help would be appreciated.Thank you.

@Tanzer,

You need to clear out data files, assigning to the 3TB.

"You need to clear out data files, assigning to the 3TB." Sorry I thought this is what you meant when you said this.Could you please explain for me what I should do.

The solution you gave did not work .probably for an earlier version of w10.

The fix I got from another forum member did the trick.

Up and running now
