Windows 7: Problem with WMP Emptying Out Library

In my opinion I would just transfer the files to the massive Unallocated space on disk 1,
This is a really sweet free tool to help format the disk...
Free Partition Magic alternative. Best Free Partition Manager Freeware for Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7/8 32 bit & 64 bit - EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition.
Seems like the image on the left has the most issues/ only 27GB left on the primary but in the same case disk 1 is huge.
With the internet access issue is why I would cut out the frustration and just transfer the files,
I'm going to post for a second opinion though so stay tuned for an update hopefully soon,
Cheers.

Well I kinda agree TZ if you don't mind me suggesting too the Partition Wizard I find easier to use when dealing with partitions or anything drive wise to be honest.

Sounds good. So basically you think that having the music files on the large hard disks makes the most sense, and cuts out possible internet issues? One quick question - why would there be internet connectivity issues when it comes to the WMP library, if the music files are stored on external hard drives?

Many thanks!

Pure speculation here but it seems a permissions issue might be occurring but no normal notification,
Use this on the external hard drive,

So the problem still persists . . . even though I've now put all of the music files on the internal (D) hard drive. So it apparently wasn't an issue with the external hard drives. I'd appreciate any further assistance. This is driving me crazy and is really frustrating because I have lots of great music and love using WMP. I really don't want to switch to Winamp or another device.
