I hope I'm putting this in the right place, If not just smack me :lol: ,and please move it to the right place....

I've got a "Sony VAIO" Circa about 2002..
I've already run Malwarebytes, it came up clean.
I've already run AVAST (Free Version) It too came up clean.
I've already run CCleaner.
I"ve got "Windows XP Home"

My Question is, How do i do a drag and drop from "C" drive TO "D" Drive???
Is there any thing that I shouldn't put on "D" Drive?? and If so what??

Now I'm NOT computer literate, I know just enough to get myself into trouble...
so i'm going to need step by step(small words please, BIG words(Terms) just confuse me)Directions Please.

I've gone as far as I can on my own,So I need to let you all have a crack at "WHOVILLE"


Thank You so much in advance!!!

IN WAY OVER MY HEAD

The reason that I need to do this is,I keep getting a message that my "Minium Memory(?) is too low and Windows is trying to creat more"...

Then Last night out of the blue, my computer shut down and then restarted all by it's self...Microsoft's screen came up and told me that they couldn't find the reson for the "ERROR" but gave me a list of suggestions to try..I tried all that were pertanant to "Whoville"
This left me wondering if i just need to move somethings from "C" drive TO "D" Drive, and how to go about it.

I think I forgot to add a few things, like This is a desktop...

I'm using IE8, SP2 ,

And I need to ask, How do I tell if "D" Drive IS A RECOVERY Drive?? and IF it is,just what exactly can I put on "D" Drive??

UP TO MY EAR'S IN ALLIGATORS :wacko:

you should be able to drag and drop anything except system files and executable files of most programs. Pictures, movies, document programs etc you should be able to drag and drop from one drive to the next with no problem, just drag and drop the same way as you would images from a jump drive. And as far as it being a recovery drive, normally it will say recovery after the D in my computer if that is the case (normally, not always) the other way to find out is to click the D drive and go into it, if theres windows recovery files in it it will either be locked or you will see them.

@ the_patriot11,

GOD BLESS YOU!! THANK YOU!!

I did sme lookin and i think this is gonna take me some time to figure out..but at least now i know where to start.

A few years ago a friend(Dadkins..Dave Adkins...GOD rest his sweet soul) helped me do a crash and burn of my system by remote....it took me hours to re-install everything, and like a cat with kitten's he worried
about me, so he sent a message to a mutual friend to find out how i was doin...she called and told me to stop given dave a hard time. :lmao: He was so relieved to see me back online... :lmao:

anyway,when i looked earlier i noticed that Dave had put some pictures and stuff on "D" drive for me....
so far i've seen nothing to indicate that "D" drive is a restore drive...but i'm gonna be sure before i do anything...

THANK'S SOOOooo MUCH!!

if the only thing on the D drive is pictures and stuff Id say its not a restore partition, if it was there would be system files.

they are the main files of a program in question, as in the program that starts the application. If you have it set up to view file extensions, the extention for them is usually .exe a program will not run without them, and the reason you dont want to move them (some you can but as a general rule dont) is because when it goes to execute the command and load the program, it will load all the necessary files, and often times a program makes registry changes that are necessary to run it, and the executable file will look for these entries, and if you move it it may not be able to find them, and the program may not load properly or at all.
