I installed new internal 2T hard drive and formatted the internal hard drive and named it F drive works fine. The problem is now that my C drive still has only 9 GB remaining the Program Files Folder and User Folder is where 250 GB are stored most of the C drive is taken up by. When I drag and drop the Program Files or the User Folder my computer just copies folders on to the new F Drive with 1.8T remaining after formatted and there is not even an option to Send To the F drive on the right click. What do I do now to get the computer to start saving all new data to the new F hard drive and not the C drive, and How to I move the folders out of the C drive?? Please help THX Jay :-)
Well, what you are doing is correct. But what is the format of your F Drive? Is it NTFS? FAT 32, FAT 16?
Which new data? Are you talking about the operating system when it installs new updates?
If you are talking about programs and among other things I will refer you to another thread that talks about this same issue (the drive names will be a bit different. Just look at the first couple of posts.
Thanks for your reply :-) I am going crazy here I thought what I was doing was correct I just don’t know why it is coping the files and not moving the files. Just checked the Properties Tab the F hard drive is Hitachi Deskstar Model: HDS723020BLA642 format NTFS. I am speaking about new data in my User Folder every time I save a file picture, music, doc it is saved on the C drive in the User Folder instead of moving the User Folder to the F drive that is empty.
I understand that the Programs File and system will always live on the C diver Correct?? But I don’t want my User Folder to live there is this possible? Otherwise I am going to be moving data every time something is saved.
