Windows 7: C: drive low on space

C: drive low on space

I have a large internal D: drive that I would like to transfer most of the programs to, from the c: drive. And make D: drive the default programs drive?

Why don`t you just take some space free D, it would be much easier and faster. You could use Partition Wizard.

Best Free Partition Manager Freeware and free partition magic for Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Vista and Windows XP 32 bit & 64 bit. MiniTool Free Partition Manager Software Home Edition.


Post a shot of disk management before you start and we could advise you.

If you really want to install the programs on D, just change the drive letter to D: when you install the program.

As I said, if you want to save space on C: you have to uninstall the programs you want to remove, then reinstall them and change the drive letter from C: to D: during the install. The programs will then be installed on D: and your shortcuts will be installed in the start menu like normal.

You should really be moving data off of C and onto D if you need room.

If you could post the shot of disk management it would help.

start>right click computer>manage>disk management

And I gave you the link that explains how to add a picture to your post.
