External and internal hard drive download problem

Hello, when I take my internal 3 and 1/4 hard drive offline I can't get downloads onto my external drive, even though I have set the parameters for that external to be for downloads. With the three and a quarter online I can download to my external hard drive. Is there a way with my three and a quarter internal offline that I can download to my external?

Edit: Forgot to mention the internal drive is storage, not OS
Android / Chrome
