I have a new Dell Inspiron 15r 64bit with 250gb. All my files go to my C drive (which is now completely full) and i have a completely empty D drive with 250gb that i really was hoping to use. when i move files over, my computer "cant locate them." If i could just have one big C drive that i could put everything on, that'd be AWESOME. i dont plan on running another OS on this laptop and i am the only user. Can anyone help? Thanks!

Although it is possible to achieve this, I usually highly discourage it because of the risk involved with such a setup. It is called a spanning volume. It allows the hard drives to work in unison to achieve an accumulated total of hard drive space.

The reason I discourage it is because with this setup, if one drive fails, you lose everything. Typically with a low recovery rate. Needless to say, it is risky.

Your best bet is to resolve the issue of why your computer cannot locate the files you're trying to move.
