    Hello Jeff, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Does the second hard drive have a drive letter assigned to it and shows up in the Computer window?

    As a test, press and hold Shift, right click on a file, release Shift, and click on Send to too see if the drive is there now.

    Hope this helps for now,
    Shawn

    Hi thanks for reply yes the drive has been assigned (F I can save to it by drag and drop or specifiying its location . I have tried shift select this does bring up the send to list but the drive is not shown . I have also noticed that documents is also not in send to drop down list list I can work around in various ways but it is such a handy way to save. I am sure there must be a way of adding destinations to the list hidden somewhere in win8. Many thanks again for looking Jeff
