Sounds like you want another partition. You can do this using softwares like Partition Magic, that won't affect the files/data/software/etc. currently on your hard drive. The problem is that, should anything go wrong, you would end up with more problems than it's worth.

What do you use the D drive for (assuming it's another hard drive or existing partition)? What about creating a MomsMusic folder right in there, a shortcut on the desktop for her...that would move the files off the C drive and open up space.

How tight is space on C:? Also, do you have a CD burner? You could burn her music to CD's (a CD can hold 120+ songs as mp3's)....

Hope this helps,

MBN

If D is, in fact, your CD drive and not another partition, then keep in mind that if you ever get some spare change, you could pick up another hard drive and pop it right in. It isn't very difficult, it would give you the second drive for file storage, and you could also move personal files from C over to the new drive, opening up even more space on C.

Good luck,

MBN
