Easy. Use Windows Explorer to view your folders then drag 'n' drop your pictures/music folders to the D: drive.

To delete a file or a folder simply right click on it, and move your cursor down to the "delete" in the drop down menu. Always double check what you are about to delete to be sure its in the proper drive!

If you hold the SHIFT key while drag'n'droping a folder on one logical drive to a different logical drive it is moved i.e. the folder is deleted from the first drive automatically.
Sorry, I forgot that bit. :thumbsup:

Be careful what you delete from the C:\ drive - normally it houses the operating system files and deleting them can cause your computer to crash/not start.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
