using windows 7 home premium "c" is full and I wish to move contents of WMP library on this drive to drive "d" to liberate space on "c"' Will I need to install WMP on drive "d" -- can I move the "c" drive contents in one move -- will I have to create instructions for future cd's etc to stop installing on "c" and now stall on "d" drive library. As I am 78 yrs old and my pc knowledge, of technical terms, is very limited please provide any guidance in the simplest language possible


thank you in advance

You appear to have a Dell OptiPlex 745 with separate 250 GB and 500 GB internal hard drives.

Is that correct?

If your music is in the My Music folder then you can easily move the entire folder to the other drive. See here how to move the Music folder: http://www.techsupportalert.com/con...rsonal-folders-my-documents-another-drive.htm
The above article shows all the folders, you don't need to move them all except the Music folder. If the music is in the My Music folder and you move that folder than WMP won't even notice the difference and still have all the music as it did before.

WMP only needs to be installed once on the system, it doesn't matter what the location of the music folder is in relation to where it is installed. You can have or add music libraries from any drive you want.
