Hi there,

I've just bought this new computer (Dell Inspiron N5520). The drives they've partitioned for me are: Local Disk C 100GB, Local Disk D 415GB, Local Disk E 415GB. Now, I don't have experience working with computers with more than one drive (my previous computer only had Local Disk C and all the ones before that as well) so I'm not really sure what to do.


I suppose this is all fine everything except that my Users folder is in Local Disk C (with 100GB). And if I'm not wrong, the Users folder is where my documents and my music an basically most of my files will go. And the 100gb drive will quickly fill up in this case. Is there a way to move it to Local Disk D or E without turning it into a complete fiasco?

I've considered just making new folders in local disk D and calling them my documents and everything as a replacement. Will this work?

Or would it automatically move on to Local Disk D if Local Disk C is full? Will the folder just somehow extend itself? In this case, I should leave Local Disks D and E alone for the moment yes?

Thanks for helping

I assumed you're using windows 7.
