Hi,

I have Windows XP X64. When I recently formatted my pc, Windows placed the WOW files in a partition of my hard drive, not in my C drive.

Is there a reason for this?

Can I move the folder to my C Drive?

What do you mean by "Windows placed the WOW files in a partition of my hard drive"? WOW to me means either World Of Warcraft or Windows On the World, what does it mean in this case?

I don't have a 64 bit system so that many be why I don't understand.

LOL . . . it a program, or a set of files, that Microsoft created so that x64 would have compatible files with X32 systems. It's a part of Windows x64 but it didn't come with x64. It was an add-on, but to place it on a partition on my primary drive doesn't make sense. Windows is on my C drive and WOW is on my D drive.
