So I've gotten this pre-built pc around a year and a half ago, and suddenly I need to download something but my ssd has ran out of space, and remembered I had a 2 TB hard drive I haven't used yet. When I downloaded a few images it was okay but once I started downloading things that were bigger it was struggling, I tried downloading 'apex legends', a game on steam it seemed to have forgotten the hard drive, and wasn't seen on the task manager until I restarted the whole pc. I tried downloading again and it had done the same thing, I looked at the download performance and the disk usage was increasing and decreasing, until it reached rock bottom and the whole download stopped.

sorry if this is just an issue with how the pc is or built, but is there a reasoning behind this? would really like to get this hard drive to work thanks
