I have space issues on my internal drive and want to move my pictures and the software (Canon ZoomBrowser EX) from my internal drive to my external drive. Is there anyway to easily do this so I don't lose any photos and all will auto download to external drive folder in the future?

What OS?
You can certainly move the files, but moving the program might not work. It would certainly be slower and probably wouldn't save much space anyway.

Yes, you can copy the pictures to an external drive. Leave Zoombrowser alone, but go into its preferences/options and have it read/download the pictures from the new drive. Cannot tell you how to do that, but it has to be possible. . I own several Canons. but never installed the ZoomBrowser stuff.

You might also copy all your pics to CD/DVD. Only after you have the copies verified on the new drive and on spare media should you get rid of the originals on your C: drive.

All hard drives eventually fail so you should have backups.

Using Windows XP. Cannot located preferences/options within ZoomBrowser where it allows me to choose default drive to download to. Contacted Canon support and they told me I could only have the software work on the default internal C drive. Will not work with external drive?

I'm not going to load my Zoombrowser, but I did look at its owners manual. By default, images get stored to your MY PICTURES folder. You can change that with the preferences button like this pic shows.
