  1. How to Change D: drive to default drive.


    I recently bought pc i need for my job and hobbies.

    It has very small C: drive and additional drive that has 2TB storage

    I was loading and installing all my apps needed and the pc started to complain about the low storage, i tried to get the new apps to the D: drive but i have no clue how.

    Any help here for a total butterfinger?

  2. D drive

    Hi,

    Based on the details you have provided us, it appears that there might be some corrupted contents on the said partition. We can also consider that this is caused by a virus.

    For us to check if a certain virus is hiding your files, kindly follow the steps below:

    • Type Command prompt in the search bar.
    • Type-in the following command:

      attrib -h -r -s /s /d D:\*.*
    • Press Enter to execute the command.

    If you think that there is nothing important stored in it, then we suggest that you reformat your D drive so that you can use the free space for important files.

    You can follow the steps below to start with the process:

    • Click on the File Explorer.
    • Select This PC.
    • Right-click on your D drive, then click on Format.
    • Follow the on-screen process to finish formatting the partition.

    Let us know how it goes so that we can further assist you.
