Hi, I was wondering if there was any way of changing the hard disk that my songs on iTunes are saved to. I have two hard disks (C:) and (D:). (C:) is full and (D:) is almost empty. The songs are automatically saved to (C:) but i have no room for anymore songs. Can I change where they are saved to?

PS. I have vista if that makes a difference.

I don't use iTunes myself, but can't you manually move the files to the 'D' drive using copy/paste?
If you change the view of the files in the folder windows to 'Details' in the menu-bar, they will be listed all in a single column. Then single-click the top one, hold down 'Shift' key and single-click the last one. They should all now be highlighted. Right-click and choose 'Copy', open an empty folder on 'D' drive, right-click and choose 'Paste'.

You can now delete the original ones on the 'C' drive. Just keep doing that every few weeks to move new music files from 'C' to 'D'

Incidentally, it's not good to let the 'C' drive get full or nearly full as it will slow Windows down. It needs empty space to swap data in and out of ram when the ram fills up during every Windows session. See if there's anything else you can move to the 'D' drive, though obviously moving applications needs a different approach. What you can do to move applications is uninstall them first, then re-install them on 'D' when the installer asks you where to install. Either that or get a new disk with a higher capacity.
