Moving programmes from C to D drive

HP Recommended
Envy 360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)


My HP envy has two hard drives, a C which is nearly full and a D nearly empty. I was wondering if there is a fool proof way to move programmes from one to the other? I tried on settings without success. 

BTW, I have no files on C and cleaned Bin, temp files, etc. The issue is that C is quite low capacity 1.66 GB while D is over 900GB. 

Many thanks for you suggestions!

Not all programs/applications can be installed outside Boot drive (in this case C:) But you can move all users data/files to 😧 using the following ways:

Sorry, but there is no way to move already installed applications from one drive to another.  You would have to uninstall and reinstall them and as @banhien pointed out, you might not be able to reinstall all of them to a drive other than C:


As to the lack of space on C:, 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:

Also, there is a freeware app known as Wise Disk Cleaner. I use it every day to get rid of junk files:
