I left it that way, and so far have only used C: because 1) I have no experience in using more than one drive, 2) that's where most programs download to anyway, 3) it contains the My Documents folder where I organise all my personal files into My Pictures, My Music, My Videos, etc. folders., and 4) I had not yet run out of space.
However, despite deleting what I can and buying an external HDD on which to archive and back things up, my C: has used up its ~70GB of storage.
I've read up on partitions a little and believe that that's how my laptop's memory is organised. I'd like to ask ...
- is my assumption correct? and if not, what is the explanation for the memory being split into C: and D: ?
- which files are best (or at least safe) to move from my C: to my D: drive?
- how do I go about safely moving them?
- will everything continue running smoothly after I move these files? or do I need to point programs, applications, etc. to the new location of the files?
- is there anything else I should worry about (or at least take into consideration) before/when doing this?
- there seems to be a lot of talk about the benefits of organising your files in partitions. how can I optimise my use of these two (C: and D: ) drives?
