  1. Transferring 'Documents' folder/files from C to D drive


    As the title says, I'm trying to move the folder to my D drive as my C drive has been rapidly losing storage not sure why, any tips on that? and so I wanted to free up space. Well, I was advised that I can redirect the 'documents' folder by right clicking the folder, going to properties, and then changing the location of it to a premade 'documents' folder on my D drive. I'm currently trying that right now but find that it is, perhaps, stuck on 'preparing to copy'. Now, granted, when I checked the amount that would be transferred, it did say ~24GB, but im not even seeing an indication of time

    :)

  2. Transferring files to another folder. Speed issue.

    I run a 500GB WD Velociraptor as my C drive and I have a standard 7200rpm 500GB HDD as my storage (D drive). I'm only getting about 15mb/s right now transferring files/folders to another folder or transferring from C drive to D. Why is the WD HDD so slow? Am I missing something? *Confused Transferring 'Documents' folder/files from C to D drive :confused:

    Transferring 'Documents' folder/files from C to D drive

    Need Help Files Transfer

    I have a computer running Windows XP Home Edition. That computer has two internal HDDs:

    The 1st HDD is C:\ that running Windows. And it has 20GB total of capacity.
    The 2nd HDD is D:\ that is empty. And it has 90GB total of capacity.

    The C:\ drive is almost run out of space (full). Is there a way I can transfer everything in the C:\ drive to the D:\ drive and begin to use the D:\ drive from there on as primary drive?
    Can the Windows Files Transfer feature in XP transfer everything I have in C:\ to D:\? If it cannot, then which way can I use to perform the above step?

    Thank you.
