Hello I have been looking for some help and am not very good at finding results on the computer or web for that matter. I am a blue caller man with very little computer experience and am seemingly entering my wits end(s) every time I try to do anything related to computers. I purchased an external hard drive to do, what was supposed to be, a very easy and painless transfer from my old (windows 7) to my new (8) computer. I watched youtube videos and really thought this will be easy but I was hammered once more. Both computers have windows easy transfer on them, I have a new hard drive (external), and I'm supposed to plug it in and go.>???? Not happening. Long story short I had to copy and paste over 3,000 pics to the external and then drag them into my new computer. then I thought I had it figured out so Plugged into old computer and got everything downloaded to my external hard drive, YES:), Plugged back into my new computer and hit go and almost everything transferred ok, then got an error message saying my D drive (recovery) was full. Not enough disk space! What??? This is a brand new computer, I thought......! come to find out everything had transferred but apparently to my Recovery (D) drive I guess. I really don't know what I did or how to fix it?????? PLEASE HELP. That's my story and thanks for listening :)

You can move the files from your recovery partition to the C: drive using Windows Explorer (not internet explorer).
