Hi Voltec
Did you actually install a second physical hard drive?
What are the size of both drives if so?
Your post reads a bit like a text message, try to rephrase and be more exact please.

As Wolfeymole says, this is a bit difficult to decipher. Maybe you partitioned the C: drive in error.

In any case, we could help you more if you would go into detail, explaining everything you did from the time you took the drive out of the box.

I think the second drive is sat looking in to space Elvandil and it's like you say he has partitioned C

Yeh, that's possible. But the numbers don't match up---there can't be a 120 partition on an 80. But maybe the sizes weren't checked. Still a mystery.

voltec2002:
What software did you use to install the drive? Did you format it? Did you partition it? What operating system are you using? Can you access your new drive? When you right-click your drives in My Computer, Properties, what sizes are the drives?
