I have a new external HDD connected to the computer and im using it for all of my media. i want to make it so when i drag something to the new drive form the local C drive, it deletes it off the local C drive and puts it into the new drive instead of leaving a copy on the local c drive

thanks

I believe if you hold the shift key down and then drag the file, it will move rather than copy.

I do not believe that there is any other way. Holding down the shift key while dragging the file doesn't seem to be a bad way to go.
