Move files to second hard drive

Q:
I just got a second hard drive . How do I move programs over to it?

A:
First off, the better way to go is to leave your programs on the C drive and move documents, pictures, and music files over to the new drive. These files can take up a lot of space, especially WAV, MP3, and JPGs. This also protects your data files in case something happened to the operating system or your C drive.

If you really want your programs on the new drive, you’ll need to uninstall them from the C drive and re-install on the new one. That can get tedious, and you run the risk of errors since some files (like DLLs ) get written to the C drive even if the program is on the other drive.

As for HOW to move music files and such, justdrag and drop from one drive to the other.
