MOVING FOLDERS BETWEN HARD DISKS

I have recently had a second hard disk installed as the existing 40GB one was beginning to fill up. I would like to mave a couple of the larger files from the C Drive to the F Drive. Is it just a case of using copy and paste or is there something else I need to do? Once I have copied, can I safely delete the original folder from the C Drive to create more space?

if i want to transfer files between my tw hd `s all i do is drag and drop across from one to the other.i think its differnt to program folders as if you drag it across you have to change th shortcut to it i think

In a word yes. as long as they are user created folders Or use drop and drag sometimes easier.
Worth a mention, just make sure that you have copied and can access the correct folder before you delete the original.

But how do I know I am accessing the correct folder or programme if there are two copies available on different hard disks?

Right click and use Send To.If yopur new hard drive is not in the list,type sendto in the Run box,press enter,then drag and drop your new hard drive icon to it

Well you will be accesing from a different drive look at the description ie D:\ my documents\my folder.
If you wish you can then rename your new folder or even add something to the name ie folder2 to keep it seperate.

Is your c: drive becoming full because of programs or storage?

It is mainly full of storage - one folder of video material is now 5.00GB - and my DTP programme is quite large too.
