    Easiest way to remove Windows and boot files from drive


    I have two drives with files on them and want to make one drive A inactive(remove windows) so that I can make the other drive have windows 10. What is the easiest way to do that without removing or formating Drive A.

    But....does the OP want to erase the entire drive, or just Windows and what would make the Windows 10 install think it is the boot drive?

    You don't want to erase the drive because you have data on it that you want to save? First, you need to post us what partitions are on the drive as shown in Disk Management. Type "create and format" in windows search and the top app that shows should be disk management.
