What does hard disk drivers 2 mean

Hello,
When I click "computer" to check how much storage space I have on hard disk C, It says at the top "hard disk drivers (2). Does this mean that the capacity shown is doubled? It gives the capacity as "1.33 GB Free of 452 GB. When this dilk runs out of space will another start storing info and how do I regain space on the one it is showing?

  1. You should see directly below that, 2 drives - Local Disk C: and Local Disk D: (or some other drive letter)

    are they there?
  2. WOW, that drive is FULL. Unless you have a RAID JBOD set up, when the drive is full, it will start overwriting the existing data on the drive.
    The most effeetive way of freeing up space is deleteing information (Files) that you don't need.
  3. You may have to expand the screen by clicking on the little black arrow to the LEFT of the part that says "hard disk drives (2)"

  4. Hard drives DO NOT overwrite data when they are full, they simply need to have data removed, it is not automatic and your computer will not switch to using a new drive just because the old one is full.

    ps time for some summer cleaning;)

    How do you determine which files you can delete. How do find out what the files do for you.

    Yes they are there. I know I should clean it out by deleting files I do not need but I do not know how to determine which files I can safely delete . Is there a website that has a list or will help ;you determine which ones you can delete? How do you find out what the individual files do?
