:flowers:
Is there a BC tutorial on using D: Drive. I would like to know exactly what files, programs, etc can be saved or moved to the D drive, and importantly, what NOT to save move to this drive.

Such as Back-up Registry, Audio/ Media etc Applications, System Utilities, file Utilities, Add-ons, Extensions etc etc

I moved files before and made a total mess.

A simple step by step guide would be very handy.

Also, Spybot Resident Dialogue registry change box is incomplete. I know there is an answer somewhere but I just can't find it.

Thanks

:thumbsup:

It would be helpful to know what your "D": drive consists of. Personally in the current configuration, my machines "D": drive is a DVD player. Quite unusable for anything like what you are wondering about.

Regarding your Spybot problem:

This is a known problem with Spybot.
You can find more information about this, here:
Spybot/Alert Dialog, Not complete

Scarlett posted a link to a couple of temporary fixes:
TeaTimer fixes
I've used the ResHacker fix, and it worked for me.
Used it shortly after it was posted, and haven't experienced any ill affects, yet.
All it does, is resize the TeaTimer dialog box (increases height), so all the entries are visible.
It changes the default height from 160 pixels, to 190 pixels.

OK Nat here we go. :thumbsup:

Media files like music and vids can be moved easily.. The same goes for stand alone utilities (which did not require install).

Programms are a different cup of tea which require hands on guidance I suggest we wait untill you are finished in te HJt thing/
