    My hard drive is partitioned and Drive C is near full. Drive D, which has 80% of the total hard drive space is near empty. I want to move my documents from Drive D to Drive C to relieve the pressure on Drive C. My documents is 2 GB. What is an easy and good way to move the file from Drive C to Drive D?

    Thanks.

    Hi David!

    Well, you could simply move the files manually. If you wan't the "my documents" folder to be stored on another partition, right click "my documents" - select "move" and select the new location. Nothing to it really.:)

    Why not simply use a partitioning program and make the C drive larger is all. I use Acronis Disk Director which works in Windows but someone may come along with a freebie for you soon that works by downloading an iso burning a cd and then booting too it...too much work for me!.

    GParted is free, however this is not without risk - I used it only a couple of weeks ago, but the operation failed and I had to reformat. I did successfully resize the partition using the bootable GParted cd a couple of times before, but I really wouldn't recommend it unless you're willing to take the risk.

    You could also consider moving your paging file to D:, but someone else will have to help you with that since I've never tried it before.;)
