I just got my new computer yesterday it is an Asus. Factory settings out of the box gives me a C Drive labeled OS (74gb) and a D Drive labeled Data 208GB.

I am a gamer and I installed Empire Total War off of Steam and then added hitman, while I was adding games I noticed how little Storage was assigned to the C Drive. With just the programs that the laptop came with and empire i only have 25GB of space left. I kind of like this setup so I would like to keep both partitions but would like to add at least 75 GB to the OS C Drive just to make my life easier so I can keep a bunch of games and programs installed without having to micromanage the drive IOT keep it working effectively.

Thank you in advance and just a warning I have good computer skills but sometimes it seems like I have just enough to get myself in trouble :)

Thank you, is there any difference between the Pay version and the free version?

And is there anything I should think about being someone that has never done this before?

Even the steam installs ask you, while installing, where to install to (may have to go into advanced for this). Why not install the games to the D drive instead of the C drive?

The advantage to this is that any saved data from the games remains on the disk, even if your OS (Operating System) goes belly up and you have to reinstall it.

You have to hate Microsoft for that darn "program files" folder ... if "my documents" can be moved off onto another drive or partition, why can't "program files" ??
