Running out of Space on Drive C

By Soniajune

  1. My computer came with 15.5 GB on Local Disk C (I use Windows XP Home Edition). I now only have 3.60 GB unused space left on Disk C, even though I've put some of my files and programs on Local Disk D. Local Disk D came with 58.8 GBs and currently has 49 GBs free.

    Is there some way I can get some of this unused D disk space moved to Disk C, which is my main drive?

    If I`m understanding you right,the obvious answer is to clone your small drive to your big drive,and use the big drive as your main drive,and the small drive for backup(or pagefile).The knowledge is here You should backup everything important on the big drive first though.Acronis and Paragon often put free versions of their cloning programs on magazines.If you take it step by step, it`s not too difficult(I did it for instance).

    I would actually recommend that you do a fresh installation on the newer, larger 60gig HD and use your smaller 16gig as a backup.
