Before I say anything else, a mounting problem for me is that I'm autistic. Actually, it's ASPERGER SYNDROME. ("High functioning autism.") It's a communication disorder that makes it hard for me to understand what people are saying to me. I hear things like a simple computer does. Anything implied, I may miss. If I didn't know what a car was, and you called it a "car," and then an "automobile," I might not know if you were talking about the same thing! And in addition to Asperger's, I have very poor eyesight. I won't bore you with all the other fun stuff that keeps me from functioning properly because the list is way too long!
I'm not looking for tea and sympathy. I'm just looking for help with an "almost" clean install of Windows 10! An Asperger is someone who's brain works a lot like a simple computer... with very little RAM! My workaround for this is to do things in small "baby-steps." Otherwise the data being input to my brain just falls apart, leaving me high 'n' dry, unable to complete the given task at hand.
On another forum, I did ask particular questions... like "what box do I check on the second screen of this app?" But every response was more of an overview of a complete process... or I was shown or directed toward a tutorial. I went to the forum because I was having trouble understanding tutorials. What sounds very simple to a normal human being, can sound almost like jibberish to me! Plus there's the problem of my poor eyesight. I can't see any text on my screen without the Windows magnifier. So when I'm viewing a tutorial, it's often very hard for me to see where the cursor is being moved.
I need help with moving files and applications from my C: drive to my D: drive. Just manually moving stuff is not the best way for me because I don't really know what's safe to move and what isn't. I wanted to only keep the OS plus some games on the C: drive... but my wife continually saved stuff to that drive, (a small SSD), using up precious space! I'd also like to move my games plus the game-provider, (Steam), to the D: drive).
I was told to use a program called MACRIUM REFLECT to move that stuff. But that program is meant for backing up and re-backing up files... so the tutorials seemed to be more complicated than they needed to be for what I wanna do at this point.
Can anybody explain to me how I can move files from the C: drive to the D: drive, so they will still be on my system after Win 10 is installed. After the new OS is up and running, and new drivers are installed, then I can start tackling the problem of continually backing up things over time.
Although Asperger's can be a super-power, (I learned all the basic guitar chords in one night.) (I just figured them out)... for me, Asperger's is more of a disability. Getting the help I need with my computer can be a daunting task! People don't understand, nor include disability, (of any kind), on their list of "oppressed groups."
I'd really appreciate it totally if someone could please help me through this. I'm running Windows 8.1 right now, and it's horrible! Files disappear, and can't be found! Totally YUCKY!
Yeah... I wish I could get a new brain like the Frankenstein monster did in one of those old movies but I can dream, can't I?!
