Default question

Hi every1,

I don't know very much about computers at all so here is my question: Can some1 please tell me what the reason might be that my computer is accessing the E drive? I got some screenshots that need some explaining.

Thanks
Karin

someone must have split up your hard drive into partions. which is like a seperate hard drive but made up of the space of the one you got. for example if you have a 200gb hdd you might have 2 partions both being 100gb. they would appear as C:\ and D:\ or another drive letter.

they also installed windows on the partion with the drive letter of E:\

Thanks, does that mean some1 is using windows with all its progams on the E drive?
Is there any way for me to access that E drive and see what was done with it i.e. what programs were used

I tried it but it says that location is unavailable - everything seems to have been erased - ie recycler is empty, can't access any programs that are on it. What's the reason for that?

any .exe files says that it's not a valid win32 application i can see plenty of programs but i can't do anything with them - wont let me access any of them
