    Another fine mess Ollie!
    Had some recent print problem (wouldn't) and decided to reinstall the printer software driver etc- Have a Lexmark X3350 (Fine machine). However since the first printer install my C drive has gotten fatter and the software says there is not enough space for it to install on "C"(-which it insists is where it has to go?) Even after I uninstalled the printer? No apparent option available to change the "target" drive!
    My now designated "E" drive has gigabytes of space but no way,it seems, to install the printer to this drive? I thought of removing the "C" Hdrive (My system OS stuff Win 2K is all on the "E" Hdrive-- but not sure if this drive will become my "C" Hdrive if I remove the wimpy (Original) 196 MB!! and go to the "E" Hdrive (184 GB). Is this feasable or is there a more elegant solution to get the printer installed onto the "E" Hdrive without dicking around with the software (I'm not qualified for that approach, Ollie?) What say? Thank you
    Mike

    move my documents to E right click on icon on desktop/properties/move/ in target type the path to E: make a folder on E:\ documents and move all the files to that folder. clean out temp files get utility here...

    defrag C you need at least 30%of C free for xp to operate properly..
    install your printer to the default setting..

    Why go through all these manipulations, you will have to do all over again tomorrow for the next problem. Big hard drives are plentiful and cheap, time to upgrade.
