@bmccoy 

 

Please use the following setup to save all user files/data on 😧

You can't move all from C: to 😧 because some files are belong to programs/applications.

 

Regards.

@bmccoy 

If Drive 😧 is your Recovery drive, then the PC will not let you move files and folders there -- because doing so will corrupt the HP Recovery function.

 

Since you're running Win10, 

here are some things you can do to recover some of the disk space:

Also, the community Win10 Forums has the following suggestions:

In addition, I have found the utility Cleanmgr+ to have LOTS of options for removing Windows junk, including log files. I use it practically every day. You can get it from here: https://www.getclone.app/download/category/11-cleanmgr

 

Also, there is a freeware app known as Wise Disk Cleaner. I use it every day to get rid of junk files: https://www.wisecleaner.com/wise-disk-cleaner.html
