    I use an Asus X50C laptop with Windows 7. At present everything is on C: Drive. I would like to move all documents, photos, videos, music etc. to D: Drive and arrange for future saved items to go into D:Drive automatically. How can I do this?

    How big is this D drive?

    Is it a external or internal drive?

    Thanks for your help guys but when I select the LOCATION tab the present target location is shown as
    "C:\Users\GrantPurvis\Documents" Exactly HOW must I change from C to D and MOVE the files. Everything I
    tried did not work.

    You should be able to change the "C" to a "D".

    Not sure it's necessary or even desirable, but when I did it I first created (empty) folders Documents, Music, and Pictures on D:

    Then on that Location tab you mention click on the Move... button and select the new location--for me it was D:\Documents; for you I guess just D:\

    If you change the "C" to a "D", it will be "D:\Users\GrantPurvis\Documents.
