I would assume that the D Drive is a secondary Hard Drive for Storage. If that be the case. Here are 2 ways to move your Data .

1. Go into my Computer and double click on the C drive. Once this is showing all your files. Leave this open and Go into My Computer again and this time open up the D Drive. Now you should have 2 windows open. If you wish you can resize the windows so they are next to each other and you can work with them. Here we can Drag n Drop the folders or files from the C Drive to the D Drive. To Do This you can left click on a file or folder on the c drive and once you click it hold the mouse button down when you click and then just drag it over to the D Drive Window. And let go. This will move the folder or file from one drive to the other. You can also select multiple files or folders by holding down the control key when you click. You select one then the next one and so on, they will remain highlighted showing you they are selected, then you can drag them all over to the D drive Window.

2. Another way is to select the folder or file you want to copy, And right click on it. A pop up menu will appear. Scroll down to copy and left click.... Now you can go to the D Drive window and right click in there and select paste. This will copy the folder or files into that Drive.

Hope this is clear to understand...

C drive is full

Take some stuff off it. Get an external hard drive and copy all your music/video/pictures/etc. off the X Drive. It should only be used for programs anyway if at all possible. That way if the OS or HDD dies and you have to wipe the drive, you won't lose all your hard-earned collections.

Ever thing you want to store is being save to drive D. Drive D is full. How do I get it to put file storage back to drive C? Can drive D be filtered, so as to put regular files back to drive C and keep all...

You can transfer anything that is NOT a program. OR used by a program. Otherwise yes you can transfer the stuff from D to C no problems, also run disk cleanup and defragment to get more space back, empty recycle bin etc too. remove all files from TEMP, TMP dir's Compress the drive to save space.

2 hard drives

Switching the two is a big big job that involves either significant BIOS changes and or reloading windows.

Instead of doing this, move all your files to the big drive. Keep only the system on the "C" drive.

Remember,. nearly all progams want do install default to the C drive ...

If you insist, you will have to copy all of windows to the other drive, change D to C (make it the master, Cable Select or Pin Select? Serial interface or IDE, SCSI?

Several questions you must resolve before you make this move.

Really, the simplest thing to do is move your stuff to the big drive (or you could dump it too!)

Thanks for using

Reset to factory dettings


I am not sure on which drive the OS is installed. You can confirm if you can see Document and Settings folder on C drive. It means you can do all operations on D drive. To make it clear you need not to reset you just Select the Files and Folders which dont need it and press Shift+Delete. it will ask your confirmation before deleting the stuff. If sure press yes for all.

It will remove all the selected stuff from the D drive.

I recommend this becuase I am not sure whether you have Recovery disc provided by show owner.

My d drive is full

Hello caliandrew88,
Having a full D Drive will not cause Vista to crash. If you need to free up space then get an external hard drive to move files off of your machine.
