move item

  podlod 10:53 17 Mar 2009

Hi, I have a photo/copier and decided to uninstall as I wanted to transfer it to my E drive from my C drive as there is more memory there. I uninstall the item and re- installed again hoping to transfer it to E drive, but it did not give me an option and installed it again to C drive automatically.
Is it possible to move all the components to E drive manually on the Move it button, or is there a specific way of doing this.thanks for any help.

The default location for installation of the drivers etc. is alway's your operating system partiton (usually c:) you could try uninstalling all the drivers for the device, then running the installation again, noting carefully to change the default location (c:/...) to E:/...

Should work as most installation cd's give you the option of changing the install location.

As I said they dfid not give me a choice as to where I wanted it downloaded, and I uninstalled it completely as I used Revo uninstaller.

By the way,your E drive uses the same memory as the C drive.I assume you mean you have more space available?

So you don't have a driver cd? Make and model?

I have a C drive 15GB free space which I think is my main, and an E drive which has 158GB free space which is the other part of my C if that makes sense, ????

Yes, but do you have the driver / installation cd for the device in question? You can't just copy the files over....It won't work

Yes I do have the card, what do I do with it, no not there?

Getting confused here....You have a disk that contains the required drivers and software for the device?

If so, you should be able to specify the E drive as the installation location (some files HAVE to be copied to the c drive, as the need to be installed in the windows directory)

"E drive....which is the other part of my C if that makes sense, ????"

Er, no!

Do you mean you have 1 physical hard drive, with 2 (or more) partitions named c and e, or two actual internal hard drives?
If it's the former, why not just change the size of your partions and run stuff off c!!

yes its one physical hard drive that has been partitioned to C and E. Now could you please tell me how I reduce one drive and increase the other?
