In command prompt, click left mouse and drag the area you want to copy. When you select the area, press right mouse button. Then paste here. (I hope it's clear instruction )

Ran AS SSD has green text and blue score 43/98.....169 in blue.
Those scores are generally mediocre for an SSD----but for all I know they are fine for YOUR particular drive brand/model. You'd have to Google to see comparison scores for that brand/model.

Decide and do what you intend to do with the D partition before drawing any conclusions.

Thanks for sharing your expert opinion.

Okay yea I'd also just delete and extend all of the space to C
I believe you'd have 50gb+- free after that on C,
Cheers.

Kingston SSDNow V300, 120 GB capacity. 450 MB/s Read and Write.

If I delete D, and allocate all 111 GB to C, Data Drive letter now is F, how can change it to E?

Thanks.

Well, (I guess it's SATA I port?), and using intelide drivers from AS SSD screenshot.

The seq read/write are barely higher than a SATA II spinner. Still should make a difference with 4K performance and access time.

Thanks for replying.

It's an old SATA II laptop, using SATA III drive on it. On WEI hard drive has improved from 5.9 to 6.9.

Apologize for my ignorance about the tech terms you used.

Appreciate your expert views.

Post a screen shot of Windows Disk Management with all drives connected.

You should be able to change a drive letter on a data drive in Windows Disk Management.
