Hi there. On 'my computer' it says I have two drives, a C: Drive and a D: Drive. Now, my C: drive is 116gb and there is only 1.12gb free :mad: On my D: drive, it is 329gb with only 325gb free.

How do I go about saving my files to my D drive, and moving my files from C drive to D drive without moving any important files.



Cheers

Wow!, that is quite a bit of disk consumption. Do you have any idea where most of it went (pictures, music, movies?). If you don't know, there are a few tools out there which give a human-readable graphic display of where all your drive space is going. SpaceMonger is probably one of the more popular ones. There is also TreeSize

You have 2 choices,
1) move the big stuff off of there -- but if you don't know where the space is going, then that will be a challenge. If you decide to go this route, create some folders on D:\ where the various file types will go.

2) resize the C: partition -- Easeus has a free-for-home partition re-sizer which is very easy to use. http://www.partition-tool.com/personal.htm . It will take space from D: (as much as you want) and put it on C: .

Also, if this data is important to you back it up to an external hard drive.

I have loads of music and video files in my C drive. Whenever I download, it just saves them in C drive. How can I change it so it saves them in the bigger D drive?

And I am on Windoes 7.

Whatever applications you are using, I'm sure they have some type of option for a default file saving location.
