moving programs/folders
    #1045058 - 11/11/02 10:24 PM (21 years, 3 months ago)

My local disk C is getting too crowded so I was thinking about moving some larger programs like Quicken to disk D, which is empty. Is this possible? How do I go about it? Thanks.

uhmmm...not exactly a security question and i'm sure as hell that this has nothing to do with shroomies, but i guess since i'm bored i'm justified in answering your question...

normal files can be moved simply by clicking and dragging in windows explorer. program files such as the ones you mentioned would need to be uninstalled and reinstalled in the mentioned directory. if you just moved the files to the other directory, the program will not be able to find needed files which are necessary to the functionality of the software.

Hit file -> export and save it to a .qif or something and tell it to include all data. Then uninstall your quicken and reinstall it on drive D or whatever, then file import and pick your data file; you are better off moving data files instead of programs though.

oops, my bad, thanks for answering my q's anyways. The main thing is that since I started downloading movies, it takes up so much disk space. SHould I just move the movies to disk D instead? Wi ndows media player and DivX are all on disk C, does that make a difference? How do I move the movies to drive D, in "send to", it only has drives A and E, not D

Move the movies, not the programs, it doesnt matter what drive the movies are on. Try dragging and dropping, or copying and pasting. I'm surprised you found the shroomery not knowing how to move files dude. Read the help file, because thats super basic.

I am a reasonable person.
