Making use of a second hard drive in my computer
Thanks for the response and suggestions. I guess that I stayed with DOS operating system for too long, as I couldn't stand the desktop on original Windows, so skipped moving to Windows until Windows 95. Then I never bothered to learn the intricacies of Windows and advantages over DOS, except that I could have two programs open at the same time. Anyway, I don't know what a "paging file" is - I do know where my "Documents" folders are, but don't know how to move those folders to new drive in my computer. Can I just drag and drop my entire top folder of documents from my C: drive to my new, additional drive? If I do just drag and drop entire data folders to my new drive, how will my associated programs, e.g. word processor, know where to look for the associated data? I believe some programs want their data stored in a particular place where the program knows to go look for the desired data. I'm just afraid to "experiment" with moving data or document top-level folders to my new drive and risk not being able to access data which I need access to.
Sorry about being so dumb about this, but fear grips me because of my lack of knowledge.
Thanks for your help.
