Files to different drive

  [DELETED] 17:42 28 Jan 2006

I have 2 drives on my new laptop, and want to transfer my files from one drive to the other. Is there any way I can do this to make this my default drive? Ideally, I'd like to move everything onto my other drive

2 hard drives? - that's very unusual - or two partitions on one drive?

If it's two partitions, you can't change them over - and you can't move *everything* across - you can move some stuff across though.

If you can explain more - why do you want to do this - it would help understand your problem.

my new latop states I have a Local Disk (C:) and Local Disk (D:). Is there a way, then, to merge the disks together?

I presume the desktop is the same as a desktop.

Right click on 'my documents', select 'properties' then change the c:\ to a D:\ keeping the rest of the details the same. It should create it's own folder on d: drive and transfer its files across, although you may have to do it manually.All new files then created (or loaded) into my documents ;Which will remain on the desktop, will then be stored on D:drive.

I hope this helps
