My local disk (c:) is nearly full up and I have nothing on my local disk (e:)
How in easy terms can I transfer some of my applications to disk (e:)
I have taken some off of (c:) but it automatically goes back on to (c:) when I try to put it on (e:). It will not give me a choice. I am fairly new to computers so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you. Ian

Re: Can anybody give me some advice please?

When multiple drives or partitions are available I've learned it's best to make a habit of keeping only system related programs and files on the Windows drive (C:), and any other data and programs on the other drive / partition.

  In your case when wanting to move programs, there are some programs out there that will try to find and pack everything up from a program that's already installed so that you can move it somewhere else, but that can be hit or miss whether it ends up working right later. It's usually best to just download and reinstall the programs you're wanting to move onto the other drive (e:). (Uninstalling the currently installed one first using it's uninstaller in the Add/Remove Control Panel (and sometimes the programs will also put it's uninstaller in the Start Menu as well), but be sure to save any personal files first so you can move those over after it's reinstalled).

Most installers will let you select which drive and folder to place the program you're installing, so in your case just choose the E: drive. Give it a try and if you run into any problems along the way just come on by and ask, we'll guide ya along. Smile



Shhh.. dont tell anyone, but we also have a private forum area with the really good stuff, wanna see?
