I curently am running XP and Office XP. My C drive is running low in space and the biggest thing on it is Office and all the related office stuff. Is there any way of moving it to my D Drive. I have the original disks, but would rather not lose all my settings etc. and need to start all over again?

Help!

Thanks,

mike

Move the Swap file - CONTROL PANEL - SYSTEM - ADVANCED - PERFORMANCE - SETTINGS - ADVANCED - VIRTUAL MEMORY - CHANGE

Set C to o in both and set D to 2x physical memory

I really appreciate your help, and followed it all the way to the end.

Move the Swap file - CONTROL PANEL - SYSTEM - ADVANCED - PERFORMANCE - SETTINGS - ADVANCED - VIRTUAL MEMORY- CHANGE

Set C to o in both and set D to 2x physical memory

But when I get to virtual memory there is no change button. Each of my drives is listed. Ther is a button for "set" and there are 2 boxes to input a "custom size"

Any suggestions on what I should do?

I've tried everything and I must be stupid or at least dense today.

When I get to the virtual memory page, I have a box at the top that lists all of my drives c: system d: data e:image

below that I have 2 other boxes "paging file size for selected drive " and total paging file size all drives ". In the top box there are two boxes for customs size one marked "initial size " and the other than marked "maximum size " .

the last time I tried it I entered "0", zero, into both boxes.I pressed set and it told me that I would have to reboot my machine for the changes to take effect . Nothing happened .

When I went to the D. drive there was no place for me to enter "2X physical memory " , so I entered 2 into each of those boxes. pressed set an rebooted my machine .

the best news is I didn't foul anything up. but none of the changes have affected anything .

any ideas where I am going wrong

the system is XP professional, if that makes in a difference .
