C Drive running out of room

by schwingrocker / May 12, 2006 11:39 PM PDT

My C drive is running out of room, although I have plenty of space on my D drive. Is there any to clear up my C drive and transfer the files to another drive?

Files yes, programs no

You can just up and move any files you want along the lines of word processing documents and the like. Programs will not just up and move, they will need to be reinstalled to the other partition/drive.

HD utility

I usually use this opportunity to perform a clean installation of Windows.

However, you could go to the HD manufacturer's website and download the HD utility that copies the image of your old HD to a new HD. Caution: this will erase the current contents of the new HD (destination drive).
