Hi all i just got my new gaming rig from overclockers but not sure of something. I bought a 250gb ssd and a 2tb 7200 rpm for extra storage. Now when i go into computer i see 2 drives, C Drive which has 1.75TB of 1.85TB free, and F Drive which has 138GB of 165GB free. Is the 165gb F drive my ssd? Windows is installed on the C drive i see windows folder in there also program files x86 too. Is it possible overclockers installed windows on my 7200rpm drive instead of my SSD? And if so why is F drive only showing 165GB it should be 250GB?? confused noob^^

It is confusing. Can you give us a screenshot of the Disk Management window for us? (Right click on My Computer > Manage > Disk Management)

edit: for example

why would they do that.. the ssd was meant to be my primary drive, and the 2tb 7200rpm was extra storage :(

It is probably that they installed it on both (somehow) and then wiped the one on the SSD... or something. I'd get in contact with Customer Services, as I would think that they will guide you thru it, espeically as you have 24 months of warranty.
