is the simplest answer. The new drive will come with cloning software that will make an exact copy of the full drive. After cloning, replace the full drive.
Remove the D: drive and insert the new drive there and run the cloning software. After the C: drive has been copied to the new drive, remove the old drive and set the new drive as the boot drive. Put the old D: drive back.
Okay, here are my specs:
Sony Vaio Desktop Model RX-58? (2004)
Microsoft XP SP2 Media Center Edt.
Pentium 4 CPU 3.20 GHz, 512 MB of RAM
C Drive has max 13.9 GB of space, 313 MB left.
Seperate, built in, D drive has max 166 GB, 101 GB left.
Okay, my issue is that my C drive always drops down below 100mb of free space, which can be expected depending on what I'm doing. However, I don't understand how it does it for the most simplest of tasks, while it wont do it for more difficult ones (such as running Adobe Photoshop CS). I have transfered many programs to my D drive and keep only the basics that came with the computer on my C drive.
Is there any way for me to fix this low-disk space. Personally, I think a max of 13.9 GB is way too small to start out with. I just want to stop constantly trying to find things to delete, because there is nothing left to delete!
I have stopped any programs that are not necessary for startup via msconfig, and i've used Spybot to check and see if there was any noticable virus-based issues going on. I just need some help!
