The C drive and D drivefolder placement for HP Envy Curved 34 2TB

Hi,

 

Sorry in advance if a dumb question. When I unpacked and booted up my new 2TB HP Envy Curved 34 All-in-one, there were typical folder options listed in the C drive. Therefore, as I transferred data from my old rig to this one, I moved them into the corresponding folders. As the C drive is now almost completely filled with my files, it appears (I think) that the folders are listed incorrectly under the SSD and not under the hard drive.  Don't know why the computer would come arranged in such a manner, but do I need to just copy and paste ALL of  those folders to the very capacious D drive, thus emptying the C drive?

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

Welcome to HP Support Forum. Sorry I don't know what is your HP Envy Curved 34  (Must be HP Envy Curved 34-something)  but I think your machine has 2 physical drives: 1 small capacity SSD (CSmiley Happy and one 2TB normal HDD (DSmiley Happy

 

  1. C: is very fast, which is for Operating Systems and other programs/applications. You only need around 128GB or 256GB. One of my test machines has 128GB SSD and after 4 years it still has over 30% free space.
  2. D: is huge and you can keep it to store data/files (musics, videos .....)

Now, back to your situation, I believe you copied data/files from your old computer to C: that why it is full now. Please MOVE them  (only folers from your old computer) from C: to D: using cut and paste to free up C: .

 

Regards.

Smiley Happy   HP HP Envy 34 All-in-one b025xt !  w/16 GB memory; 2 TB HDD storage; 256 GB SSD storage.

 

Before I ruin the system, I should leave the original (empty) folders on the C: drive which were present when I bought the machine?

And then create duplicates of these folders on the D: drive and then cut and paste ONLY the contents of the folders above (and the not the folders themselves) into the duplicates on the D: drive?  At the end of this, I will have identical folders on both the C and D drives, but only the folders on the D drive will have data?

 

Is that accurate?

 

Thanks!!!!!!!

Hi,

 

I can see its specs now:

It does have C: 256GB and D: 2TB. You can move data/files from your old computer to D: and do not move anything from C: to D:

 

Regards.

OK. Let me give this a whirl  and see what happens!! Any other control panel item that I need to toggle to make sure stuff is being saved in the D: directories from this point forward?

Hi,

 

You can split screen and put C: on one side, D: on one side than you can see both. You don't need other software. But if you wish, please try
