you just copied them.
next time try a right click drag and drop
and a window should open asking if you want to copy or move.
The DATA drive can be used to install new programs most new programs have
the option of where to install to.
The mail storage and IE cache can be moved to the DATA drive thru tools in IE
Most programs let you save your documents to a specific location ,you can change
location in the program to save to a folder you create on the D drive.
If you find a posting or message from me offensive,inappropriate
or disruptive,please ignore it.
If you dont know how to ignore a posting complain
to me and I will be only too happy to demonstrate :-)
