    I have a small C drive that is very close to full yet have a large D drive
    where most of my programs are installed. I run W2K.

    Can I move WINNT to the 2nd disk and free up space on the C drive? If so
    how? Can I create a logical link?

    thanks in advance

  2. Your life would be much easier if you "ghost" the C: drive to the D:
    drive. Then switch the cables/jumpers so that your D: drive is now the
    C: drive.

    why? Guest

    Not, the way you are asking.

    If drive C is on it's own physical disk, buy a new bigger disk and Ghost
    C to the new disk , then take out the old C and work from the new disk.

    If it isn't on it's own drive, you could try making several backups,
    using Ghost (on CD/DVD) , test the backups , reformat and copy the Ghost
    image back , selecting new partition sizes.

    Similar Ghost backups, test. Use a partition manager to reduce size /
    move D: partition, increase space for C: partition

    There are other similar partition / image apps from Paragon and

    How large is your C drive? if it only contains win then 10gb is large enough

    Move it with Windows Explorer.
    Don't expect it to work though.
