    Don’t move programs. Start with docs, vids, music, etc. Moving programs without mods to the registry - means they won’t work.
    If I am ever on life support - Unplug me......
    Then plug me back in..........

    See if that works .....

    Dead right. Move data such as photos, music, videos and documents first. If you use DropBox, OneDrive or the like then search how to move their data storage to your D: drive. After that, use the Windows disc cleanup (right-click the drive then left-click Properties from the drop-down list). Include the option to clear system files.

    If you're a Garmin Express user look in C:\ProgramData\Garmin\CoreServices\Downloads\Maps to get rid of needless archive copies of maps. Also, make Garmin Express save your maps to the D: drive.

    It’s been a long time since I built a computer. I seem to remember that resizeing the partissions looses all the data? I haven’t been doing any computer stuff since windows 95. I just lost interest. I think working on bikes is more interesting. For better or worse. JJH

    It does not lose data if all you do is redefine the unused space. I have resized partitions on spinning disc and solid state drives. You used to need a third party utility. I used Partition Magic. Now, Windows comes with its own utility to manage partitions. People have lost data when they try to manually move programs from one partition to another. As ever with technology, if you are not sure what you are doing, leave well alone and if you do proceed, make a back-up before dicking about.
    This space deliberately left blank as the author writes too much pretentious bollocks as it is.
