Is it normal for my new hard drive to have a new partition from the old one?


I purchased this new computer, I saw a slot for an extra hard i set the jumper for slave on my OLD hard drive and installed it. I have since decided to leave it in my OLD computer and this is my question:

The new computer recognized the old hard drive as D. It appears that there is a partition on the New drive as C and E now. All of my installs seem to go on C. Is this normal or should they be going on the E Partition? It has a couple of folders on E but nothing that I have installed. Did I screw it up or is this normal function?

Thanks for your input,

Yes I would say its normal since you are now using the new one, its understandable for the new have those partitions.
