With reference to my other posting, click here, when I reinstalled my OS I put it on a partition to see if it would help with the problems that I have been having lately. I just had a thought and I've looked under disk management, and I have a lovely healthy hard drive that is 10Gb, with 64.53Gb unallocated, and the 10Gb is filling up quickly.
Is there a way to get my 80Gb drive back, without having to reinstall everything all over again? Can I move things around?
And there I was thinking the day couldn't get any worse, lol.
Can I copy files / programs that are already on the 10Gb partition to the new partition. Or is that making hard work for myself? Btw, the 10Gb was originally meant for the OS, not the other stuff. Another question, when I install a program how do I know where its going to go?
I'd leave the programs already installed on the 10GB partition as well as continue to isntall other programs to that partition.
You can move any data files to the new one.
When installing programs you are usually asked where you want them to go. It's generally into the program files section of C drive but you can decide for yourself. Best to put them all into C anyway in my view.
Rather than move 'My documents', I have created new folders on my D drive called Dossier, pics, tunes, etc and have left the original My Docs on C but I dont use them. I have also put a large fixed size page file on D with a minimum fixed size one on C
I'm going to tick now, as with everything that you've all said and suggested, I've also found July issue of PCA. On the last page of the article, Build Your Own Pc, there is a paragraph about arranging your folders, and this also helps. So, it just remains for me to say thankyou to all.
