My System


What kind of files you are wanting to save

1) Downloaded files from browser - set from browser
2) Office files - Save the original files in your D drive, and then subsequent save is saved there

You can redirect the My Documents folder so that it stores data on another drive.

Right click on My Documents . . Select Properties . . click on the Move button and browse to the location you want to use. When it asks if you want to move the contents, click yes.

This will relocate the contents to the new location for all applications that use My Documents to store data

i want to move my programs folder to the other drive i formated the rong one so i have no space and it keeps saving in the alredy used up drive =(

i thaught that if i could make a shortcut in the c drive and move the main folder to d drive it would work but it wont let me it just coppys the files and wont let me move or delete the folder any ideas??


i was just thinking if i kept the bare minimum in my c drive programs folder and created a desk top shortcut for c drive programs and made one for d drive programs could i install the programs in the c drive then move them into the d drive and when i want t use them i can migrate them back and forth would that work or am i muttering nonsence =)

oh and one more idea could i delete the files in c drive and go threw every program and when it starts to look for the icon i can click brouse and go to d drive it seamed to work for kantaris i deleted the program from the c drive and i replaced the logo with the one from d drive and it started every time will this work for every program ? i think im onto something =)
