c drive too small for music, e drive empty!!

  Lippy 17:46 16 Jun 2007

Hi All,
Just bought a new laptop and been putting my music files on it. I believe it has 2 drives. One 111gb approx) divided into 2 (C & D) and one (another 111gb approx), E. My user account and documents/data, music, videos, pictures etc. are all stored by default on the C: drive which has rapidly filled up. How can I change this so that my files are all on the vacant E drive. Why is it set up this way anyway, surely the owners user files on a pc are going to take up the bulk of the space?
I'm using Vista on this laptop.
Thanks in advance,

Hi Freecell, I tried what was sggested hereand all is seemed to do is rename my Documents folder "E:\local drive" If I now try to restoreas it wasit won't let me and raises an error message " Failed to build the list of regular subfolders under "E:\ system volume information" Access is denied"
So now I've lost the easy link to Documents and the C: drive is still full. Any ideas what's happened?

System Restore ?

Can you give us more information on your computer (Make/ model).

Sounds like you don't actually have a separate E: drive as you stated. Two hard drives in a laptop is certainly unusual and what is flagged as E: may just be a recovery/backup virtual drive. Do you have any back-up software installed?
