*Not too sure if its exactly internal but didn't know where else to put it*




I recently built a new gaming pc with an SSD and a HHD. i installed windows onto the SSD and like an idiot check if my HDD was partitioned (idk if thats the correct word but ah well were going with it) so i started downloading all my games and what not all to my SSD. A couples weeks later anndddd my SSD is full. Whats the best was to transfer all my fils onto my HHD or do i just drag it all? 


If anyone can help me out that would be great


ps. sorry I'm not great with this kinda stuff haha

"Everything:...does that include Windows, programs installed, and all data files?


IMO...Windows and installed programs should remain on the SSD...and there is no reason to put data files of any type on the SSD.


I never drag/drop...cut-and-paste does the job for me.  Less chance for error, as I see it.


It would help if you provide the following.


.Please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot.

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the ADD REPLY or REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.
