If I plan to transfer my Mozilla from D to external F. I have already synchronized my bookmarks. How do I proceed for not loosing them? Do they remain inside Foxmarks server and I need just to go there and import them or do I need to install previously a new foxmarks in the newly localized Mozilla? Many thanks and greetings

Unless you are going to install a operating system on the F: drive you don't want to transfer Firefox to it. Firefox is stored in your Documents and Settings of your operating system, which in this case is your C: drive.

That's precisely the reason because I want to delete the fragmentation letting remain some folders and applications: the opportunity to leave some applicaction in the internal hard disk. As a matter of facts I have Mozilla in D and the operating system in C. Many thanks and greetings

I think there may be a communication problem here. Fragmentation of files is a natural occurrence because of the way that files are stored by the hdd. The files do not get stored in their entirety in one place, thus they are termed fragmented. By defragmenting the hdd it helps to put these file in a more contiguous order.

Defragging the hdd will free up some space, but it will not be very much. What you need to do is to transfer your large files like photographs, videos, and non Windows application to the other hdd.
