My SSD 256GB (Disc C) Is full, and my 1TB Hard Drive (Disc D) has barely anything on it.

Recommended Posts

Recently my 256GB SSD is full, and somehow my 1TB hard drive does not take up much space. This is really annoying because I changed where new content is saved to my Disc D, and it has always saved to my Disc C drive.

 

Is there a way I can transfer the data to my Hard Drive?

 

This can get really annoying when I am trying to record videos, and it doesn't save them because of insufficient disk space on my C Disk.

If there is just random data, you can move it yourself. But for programs, really the best way is to uninstall and re-install... Unfortunately.

Use SSD for caching and store everything on HDD. Use something like PrimoCache to do it (not free unfortunately, has 30 day trial tho and costs around 30 bucks lifetime license).

@Edop69 Hi Edop69,

 

What I do is remap where my Libraries are. It's fairly simple to do. On you D drive, make a folder called Libraries. Inside the Libraries folder, recreate all of your user directories, i.e. Desktop, Downloads etc. Then go  to C/Users/your user name. Right click on a folder, (Desktop for example), and choose Properties. Inside of Properties, click on the tab that says Location. Click on move and then chose the corresponding folder that you created on D drive. It will ask you if you want to move the data from C drive to D drive. Click yes and all of your data will be moved from C drive. 

 

The really nice thing about this is that if your OS drive dies, or if you have to do a reinstall, all of your data is safely on D drive.

 

I hope this helps you.
