C drive full unable to download.

I have an Acer Aspire 7720G laptop. My C drive is full and am unable to download. I have 2 other internal drives D and E. How do I switch to 1 of these. I thought it would happen automatically. If you could help me I would greatly appreciate it.

When you download something, point the storage to the disk you want to store on.
For exampel, you click on something you want to save/download, you been asked what you want to do with that file, select save and select where to save it and save it on one of the other two disks you have.

If you using a bittorent tool to download you do the same thing in the settings on that tool, change the directory of storage to one of the other two disks you have.

Feel free to ask if you dont understand

Good luck

    Hi again!

    Well, in firefox, you do that change under "tools"

    You see "Tools" up on top of firefox, go in there and under the first meny of seven, there you do that setting, in the midle of that window you will see where firefox stores your downloade files, change that by making a new folder on one of the other to disks you have and point the downoads to that new folder, the setting now is probably that firefox stores/saves your download to the mainboard.

Acer aspire 7720g save to d: drive? c:drive full

For your documents, music, pictures, videos etc, you can move it all to the D: drive. The drive is either a secondary partition on your hardisk or another hard disk installed on your PC. This is actually a good practice since data will be easily retrieved if ever the system crashed.

There are things you should not touch on the C: or the system drive, though. Some of this folders are:

Documents and Settings
Program Files

and the folders under it.

The general idea here is that the D: drive works as a secondary storage device.
