Aha. Turned out I'd actually rolled it back a year! The issue with the right click was being caused by WINRAR for some reason. So I uninstalled that, rebooted and now it's pretty much all back to how...

Hi,

I recently repartitioned my new laptop so the OS is on the C drive and I'd like all the User/Library stuff on the D drive.

It all seems to have gone well except for the Music folder which...

Hello again! Thanks very much, that did the trick and was as easy as you all said! I now have 120 for the OS and almost 600GB on the data drive. Much more sensible I think!

Hmm, this seems to be what has happened! I wanted to shrink it to 150GB, thus reducing it by 189GB, but it seems it'll only let me reduce it by 158GB leaving me with 181GB.

Thanks. Just a quick question to be on the safe side. If I shrink the C drive from it's current 339GB down to a still generous 150GB, it won't wipe anything off will it? I'm only using 40GB of it at...

1) Right-click the folder or drive that has a lock icon and select "Properties".
