Hello, I purchased a new HDD a few weeks ago, its a WD Caviar Black 500GB, I installed windows on it but left the old Seagate drive connected to my PC because there are still lots of my files on it. I am using the new WD as the boot drive but the problem is when I go to start and search something, it only searches the WD drive. There are lots of movies and music on my old Seagate drive and I would like to leave those files there so is there any way I can make windows search the old drive as well (through the start menu)? Thanks for the help.

Open Control Panel, click Indexing Option, click Modify and check your partitions
from Seagate and click OK. That's it.
