Swaping from 'c drive' to 'd drive'?

I have an ACER Aspire 3630, and my c drive is almost full to the point I can no longer download large packages, and would like to know how to switch from c to d drive to use the 16.9 GB I have on it?

Hello,

Print this off first, as you'll have to reboot a couple of times.

Most of your space is taken up by three things.
1.) Your Swap File
2.) The System Restore Files
3.) My Documents Folder

First, Right Click My Computer, select Propertis, choose the System Restore Tab, move the slider to the left so that the current number is reduced by half. You'll be prompted to reboot as you exit out of My Computer

Go ahead and reboot.

Next is your swap file.
Right Click My Computer, select Properties, choose the Advanced Tab, click on the Performance Button, in the Virtual Memory section click on the Change Button. You want to create a Swap File on D, this should be twice the size of your Ram Modules installed. You'll need to make this size on D the same for minimum and maximum (that makes it a permanent swap file). You ALSO need to reduce the size of the swap file on C but it has to be at least 16MB for minimum and maximum.

Now, create a folder on D: called My Documents
Copy all contents of your current My Documents on C: over to the new one on D:
Once you have done this reboot and make certain your files are on D: alright
Now, right click My Documents and type in the text box D:\My Documents

And, reboot

Right click the My Documents folder on your desktop and verify it is now pointing to the D drive.

If it is pointing to the new folder you may delete the My Documents files on c:
You'll find it at C:\Documents and Settings\[your login name]\My Documents. Delete the contents but not the folder.

Now its time to defrag C: as you have all this extra free space.

Best Regards,
Worldvet

I have an acer aspire my son was playing video games and somehow reprogrammed it you cant access it because it says administrator even with the proper password


If it's an old machine with XP, download Ubuntu 14.04, put it on a flash drive and boot from the flash drive. You can make it dual boot or just Ubuntu, ad can access all that's on the computer.
