Hello and good evening to you all. I have a slight problem and i'm hoping to get some help please. I have a nice samsung laptop, it came with 320gb hard drive, and when i set it up it was split into the following:

C drive: 45.9GB free of 112GB D drive: 167GB free of 167GB

I've put some music and a few other things on the c drive, so its beginning to fill up, so I need to know HOW to increase the space on the C drive by getting more space from the D drive please.

many thanks

You really should move all your data files from the C: drive to the D: drive

Also when you install programs whenever possible use custom install and install to the D: drive rather than C:\program files

It all depends on what operating system you are using XP Vista or W7?

Moving the music folder also depends on what program you are using like Itunes?
