My problem is with Windows Easy Transfer. I am transfering from XP to Vista computer. Since the content in D:\ drive of XP computer exceeds space available in the D:\ drive of Vista computer, transfer terminates due to insuficient space. I have lots of room in C:\ drive of Vista computer, but the transfer process won't give me option to select C:\ as a destination drive. QUESTION: How do I transfer file and setting from D: drive of XP computer to C:\ drive of Vista compter? I appreciate all help and suggestions.

I've never used windows easy transfer, but can't you selectively transfer files? If so you could break the xfer into smaller segments.

There is a simple way of fixing this. Vista has a built in ability to resize partitions [I assume you have the single drive partitioned into C and D]
To open disk management, go to start>run and type in "diskmgmt.msc" without quotes and hit enter.

Now select the C partition and choose to shrink it. Once that is done, click D and choose to extend.

Note before doing anything with partitions, do a complete backup of the system OR make an image file.

With diskmgmt.msc, I was able to shrink C:\ partition to create a larger D:\ drive. Problem solved. Thank you.
