Vista C: Drive & Data E: Drive

P
#1
I find that I am frequently running low on space on my VISTA C: drive. I
have used the disk clean up and still could do with more space.

However, my E: drive is virtually empty. Can I start saving files to this
even though it is marked as DATE E: drive.

If I can, is it possible to transfer / cut & paste / copy & delete files
from my Vista C: drive to the DATA E: drive?

Many thanks for any advice you can give me.

Hi Paul,

Provided it is not your system manufacturer's recovery volume, then yes.

Thanks for your reply Rick. However, without wishing to sound dumb, how do I
find out if the E: Drive (which is headed DATA) is my system manufacturer's
recovery volume?

click your Start orb, then "Computer" how big is drive E: ? if it's
anywhere form 4-10 Gig then its probably a recovery disk. If its larger
then it probably is another hard drive or partition that can be used. Yes
you can cut, paste, copy, even install programs to it.
