Moving Local Disk (C:) to another drive

Hello,


So far I have an SSD with my whole OS on it. And then my HDD, Disk0, with nothing.


How can I transfer my Program Files, Program Files (x86), and Users, to my HDD?


I tried setting windows side-by-side on task bar and just moving them... but then I get an Error 0x80070057: "The parameter is incorrect."

Win 7


How do I go about this?


Thanks,

  1. Are you trying to save space on your SSD? Your best option is to uninstall the programs That are currently on your SSD but you want to be on your HDD, and custom install them to your HDD. During the install of the program, you have the option to change the default directory, that's where you point it to your HDD.

    This is a fresh, newly built computer with nothing on it at all but updates.

    I want primary downloads following to load on my HDD (1 TB) instead of the SSD (100 GB).

    Steam. Photoshop. Etc etc etc. I want all of it on the big HDD, which is formatted and assigned to drive F:


    Essentially, this guide sums it up:

    However when I boot up the disk, there is no repair option. Any other method to simply move the C: Program Files, Program Files (x86), Users, to another drive such as my 1 TB HDD?

    It seems like it would be so simple.
