How to format Windows on a computer which has two harddisks?

Formatting Windows is generally easy because most computers have only one harddisk. If you try to format on the computer  which has two harddisks, you might experience an error like this:

Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition. See the Setup log files for more information.

To manage this problem, you should unplug one of your harddisks. Probably one of your harddisks is SSD. You should unplug that. After you install Windows, you can plug in it again.

Understanding offline files

If you would like to use files where are at network share, you should be connected to access these files. If you aren’t connected/online, you cannot access your files. Actually, You couldn’t… Now, you can!

Using offline files gives you ability to connect your files at network share when you are offline. To activate this feature in Windows 7, right-click the file or folder, and then click “Always Available Online“. That’s all!

By the way, you cannot use that feature in Windows 7 Starter or Home Premium. You need to Professional or Ultimate. To see Windows versions comparison table, click here.
