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

ps If you have any questions, just comment back and I'll answer your questions

My Acer Aspire One A0751h netbook touch pad is not letting me scroll or resize page


If your touchpad is working, but you can not use the special features that it previously had, you may need to update your drive software. To do this, you can visit the acer website and select your model and search for drivers. You should be able to select a sub-category for mice and pointing devices or something along those lines. Download and run the software package and follow all instructions. Restart(if necessary) and look for any third-party software that the driver package installed(e.g. Synaptic). Open the software and make sure that the features that you want to use are selected. Good luck:)

C drive full unable to download.


Hi!

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
