    I had only 1 hard drive c with only 12 % free space . I had a new hard disk added on hard drive d. I used the following software programs clean disk which did clean temporary files etc., search & destroy to get rid of spyware & diskeeper lite to defrag hard disk. i also removed unwanted programs from add/remove programs. The most free space I could get for free space is 14 %. I have windows xp pro os .I don't have the cds because when i had the pc built all the software was installed but the vendor never gave me the cds for any of the hardware. I would like to increase the free space on hard drive c by moving what ever files or programs i can to new added on volume d. What ever programs files etc I can "automatically " move to hard drive D if possible.Any other advice about this problem is appreciated. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Also, does any one know that offers A + certification courses "online" with hands on experience? The reason i ask about hands on experince becuase i beleive that is the best way to learn about just about any topic. Being a radiological yechnologist & nuclear medicne technologisy i think it' very important to correlate what one learns fron class to apply that to hands on experince. I am presently unable to work because of a lumbar spine injury & am very interested in learning about building computers & trouble shooting problems (A + certification) with hands on experience. Any advice is much appreciated. Thank You

    You can just drag and drop data files from C: to D:, but any programs you want to move will have to be uninstalled from C: and reinstalled on D:

    another option if the new drive is bigger than the first you can use a program such as Norton Ghost to copy your old drive to the new drive. You can also use the software that came with the drive or you can download it from the HDD manufacturer and do the same thing. Than set the new faster drive as the primary and your old drive which can be reformated later and set as a 2nd drive.
