This problem is very simple and may or may not be able to be solved.
I have two drive disks in my computer (C:\ , D:\) but I can only get one desktop to show. I have split up my computer files based on their category; 'work' and 'play' essentially. Programs, applications and certain files are stored onto the C:\ drive which is dedicated to the 'work' side of computers. However on the other side, on the play disk drive, I have music, movies and media files.
That is the background information that may be able to assist you when trying to help me.

The issue:
I cannot get files from both disks to show up on the desktop which has been bothering me because I obviously would like shortcuts to the applications, which include several Adobe and Macromedia programs. In the meantime, I would prefer to have both types of files on my desktop, and this means that songs and movies, mostly in folders, would be displayed on the desktop. I know the desktop folder is at a certain location on the, in this case, C:\ drive. On my computer it is C:\Documents And Settings\~MY NAME~\Incomplete\Desktop\
Put simply:
I would like to have two files from seperate drives on my desktop.


Thank you.

I could copy them, but I have gigabytes of music: nearly 12..? maybe. And the issue emerges because I would like to conserve space, which means that I wouldn't copy the file, but if I left them on the D:\ drive, I don't think I would be able to place them on the desktop. Unless...?

ps. they are both inside my computer.
both about 45 gigs each. windows is on the C:\ drive

How about creating a Desktop shortcut on the C: drive to the folders located on the D: drive?
