Hard Drive Partitions

by uncc93b / January 24, 2006 4:15 AM PST

My computer's 80mb hard drive is partitioned into "C", "D", and "E" drives. Windows XP and all my applications are installed on partition "C" (40 mb). Partitions "D" and "E" (20 mb each) are nearly filled up with MP3's. I have packed a lot of data on the "C" drive as well; programs, images, etc., and my computer is slowing down as a result. I would like to move the MP3's on partition "D" to an external drive. Is there a way to re-allocate the 20 mb on the "D" partition to the "C" partition, or do I have to reformat the whole drive?

When people need to do this, they look up PARTITION MAGIC.

you can move your mp3 to D drive partition without formating your Com. You just cut and paste it..that all.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
