Moving documents from C: to D: RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,  So my C: drive only has 5 GB left on but my D: has like 124 GB on it.  So is there a way for me to have all my "my documents" on the D: drive and not the C: Drive?  Thanks!

  • How have your docs ended up on C drive? Did you move the documents folder to C:. I don't know if this is possible but suspect not.

    If you have been logging onto the remote desktop and saving docs in the administrators "Documents" on C:, you could create another share, via the dashboard on D: and move those files to D:.

    Normally C: is 60Gb and only contains the OS. Not near my WHS at present but the OS, with a few extra addins, is around 30GB if I remember correctly. 

    The remainder of the first HD becomes D: which is where the documents folder resides by default along with other shares.
