    Window XP Professional: when starting, interupted by blue screen with error message Fat 32 D:volume (something) 1DOB-3241 verifying files and service and then system checks out OK and starts. Since loading Windows Live and Live security have had very slow response until all of it is loaded (sometimes up to 45 minutes before I can get on Internet Explorer).
    I think my D drive is too full--cannot complete defrag since there is only 9% free space on disk. C drive is nearly empty. I think I have to move some of these files to C but I don't know how. Does anyone know if these problems are connected to error message at start-up or are they separate issues? Had broadband service check over weekend and they said its not their problem. I'm not too techy but fast learner if someone has patience to help....Thanks.

    To move the files right click on them and select "copy", then make a folder on your C drive and in that folder right click "paste"

    Once the files have been moved, you can go back to the D drive and delete them. Don't delete all of the files on D, just the ones you put there.

    You should not store any of your files on the D drive, this is most likely a restore partition and should not be used by you.

    Thanks!! I don't remember having an options of where to save the files. Any ideas of how to set automatic save to C disk?
