Large Transfer of data between drive c: and drive f:


I have been suggested to keep my data in a separate drive than my operating system.

Actually, my hard drive is partitioned in two drives, c: and F:

I want to transfers my directory c:\user to f:\user. I did try to copy between them, but some files where not transferred

So what is the best way to do that. After, do I need to do special thing to make sure that all the references will be followed to the new files positions, IE when accessing them via my task manager

Hope I'm clear enough whit my soso English

Hi Martin. I had the same problem with some of my movie files. I do not know the official answer. However, it is my experience that the size should not be greater than about 5Gb. If your files are smaller that that, you should not have problems.

Have you tried using SyncToy to the transfering?
