Solved!

C Drives full free up disk space

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Ryzen 5 8GB 1TB 128GB Desktop PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I've always had HP computers but this is the first one with a tiny   'C'  hard drive and another called Data Drive 'D' which is nearly 1 Tb in size.

 

Then why have a drive (C) that's going to fill up a couple of weeks after buying the computer? Why not just have a 'C' drive and save all this hassle that I've got when I could be doing other things like earning money, which I'm not because I've got to waste time coming here to find out how to free up space so I can continue to install software or download tutorial video's from the Internet.

 

So what am I to do. I can't use Disk manager to extend the C drive into the D drive and calling it my G drive because it won't let me.

 

So someone PLEASE tell me in 'NONE' techie language how I free up space so I don't have to come back here again.

 

Thank you.

You can move user data/files to D and then set D as default for applications and downloaded files using the following guide:

Hi Banhien

Thanks for the reply.

Actually I'd sorted this problem out with a chance encounter with a friend talking about another problem she was having. Killing two birds with one stone.

 

But thanks for the guide which I printed out for future reference.
