    How to change file path from C drive (OS) to D drive (storage)


    I have just bought a dell inspiron operating with windows 10.
    The default settings were to save files to the C drive which was home to apps, general settings etc.
    I want to be able to save all my files, photos, music etc to the D drive which is 1TB of storage.
    I have tried to do this but been unsuccessful and now things are saving all over the place and my quick access links aren't working properly either.

    Is there a way of restoring how files are stored to factory settings without having to restore the whole computer?

    :)

    Change program download drive from C to D

    My program default download drive is C, but it has much less storage space on it than my D drive. How can I change the default drive for program downloads to D so as to keep my C drive faster and functioning well.

    C drive full D drive empty.

    Hi,

    For us to effectively assist you, kindly provide us the information we need below:

    • Kindly verify the total amount of your storage drive.
    • Are you using multiple hard drives?
    • If not, then your hard drive is partitioned. Have you tried transferring the other files over to drive D:?

    Regards.
