Recently, I upgraded my computer with a new motherboard, more memory, a quad CPU, 1 TB hard drive, and Windows 7. I had been using XP. I'm using the computer only as a DAW and it is not connected to the internet.
Anyway, in my old set up, I had 2 40MB hard drives, one working as my C: drive, and one listed as E: drive. Anyway, I had information on my old C: drive that I did not want to lose, so after I put together my new set up and installed Windows 7 on the 1 TB drive, I installed my 2 older drives and renamed them.
In the meantime, I had to reinstall some of my programs that did not seem to be working anymore along with their drivers, but I always tried to install the driver along with the program on the same drive. Why? I don't know, I just thought keeping them together might be a good idea, but maybe not. The programs don't seem to be working as well or as efficiently and I was wondering if maybe the drivers should be installed on the new C: drive instead. Does it make a difference as to which drive the drivers are installed? Should I take the drivers off the other drives and move them to the new C: drive? Does it make any difference?
