    I am trying to free up space by transferring files but the files just copy rather than moving from one to another. there are certain files that i cant transfer as well. I have no idea what to do
    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    First of all, I never use "Move" until I and sure that the files are at the new location, then I will delete them from the source.

    You need to tell us what files and their full path to the problem files?

    I agree. Always copy (which it sounds like you are currently doing, although not by choice).

    And if they are system files, or pretty much anything in the Windows directory, they can't simply be moved. The same would apply to any installed software, games, etc.. Although in that case, you would likely be able to move them, but the software would very likely not work again.
