Hello,

 

I've installed Windows on my C partition can I now put my documents what I make in Word etc on the E partition and install software on the D partition?

It would be great if this can be full automatic.

Hi,

 

If I am understanding you properly this may be the solution.

 

Click Start, in the Search Programs and files field, type: C:\Users\Your User Account Name. (ex. C:\Users\Bob)

 

From the list, Click to open C:\Users\Your User Account Name (ex. C:\Users\Bob)

 

Right click on Documents and click Properties,

 

When the Documents Properties window opens,

 

Click on the Location tab and make the necessary changes.

 

 

Best of luck and Please keep BC posted!

See this article.

 

...and install software on the D partition?

Some software don't take kindly to being installed on a partition that different to Windows.

But most software can?

That is something you will have to find out on your own.

 

BTW, it is unnecessary to quote my entire post.

Just a note...the default location most programs are set up to recognize/install in...is the C: partition.

 

Is there some clear and cogent reason why you wish to change that?
