help! need to create more disk space on C:?

  karbo 11:47 30 Aug 2007

i have no disk space left on c: drive which has 27GB and 138mb free.
i have 197Gb of free space on D:!(sony Vaio)

i have 15Gb in itunes on the c: drive whic seems the easiest option to move it to D.
But, i am still a novice and do not want to move it or cut and paste it to find i cannot use the tracks etc what is the correct way to move itunes across to D: drive so i can then free up the space!
i am getting obvious poor performance at present.

Suggest you first COPY itunes from drive C: to Drive D:

Then test out thoroughly using the files on Drive D:.

Then when you're totally confident that all is working OK, DELETE the relevant files from Drive C: - maybe playing extra-safe and doing it in chunks rather than all in one go.

Then (finally!), empty your Recycle Bin.

This is called the 'belt, braces and bits of string' approach. :-) HTH.

Regarding moving ITunes folder & library;

Use CCleaner to clear out temporary files too; click here

i am copying the itunes folder across now 117 minutes! which is located in "my music" and then will copy itunes application across and see if that works?

will ccleaner automatically check both C: & D: drives for tem files etc or do i have to install that again and run 2 versions?

You only need one installation of CCleaner.

i have tried the following and it has not worked

i have copied the itunes music folder to d:

destination; D:\iTunes1

i have installed a new version of itunes from the web onto the d drive and that runs okay and plays the files from the c:drive
destination: C:\Documents and Settings\currys\My Documents\My Music\iTunes\iTunes Music
but if i load a new track on it only goes into this folder not the copied one on D:

so if i delete this music folder it will not play the tracks? any suggestions?

it seems like i need to tell itunes where to play the tracks from and where to store new tracks when added?

No need to install ITunes application on the D drive.

i think i have cracked it i have found a setting in itunes that allows me to point it and browse a folder and it seems to have worked!

many thanks
