Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I have a Toshiba laptop (xp) with 40gb hard drive. It was nearly out of memory so I purchased a new 320gb hard drive. I made a back up with Paragon, saved everything on an external hard drive and fitted the new hard drive. Now my ''C'' drive is still nearly full but I have a ''F'' drive with loads of memory, how can I enlarge the ''C'' drive with memory from the ''F'' drive? I thought when I fitted the new hard drive I would have all the 320gb in my ''C'' drive. Any ideas please.


Answers :

Unfortunately it doesnt work like that, you will have to transfer files from the c drive to the f drive which should give you more room on the c drive, or switch the drives around and re install xp on it the you still have access to all your files still but any programs on there will have to be re installed

Too slow We bought our computar about 2 years ago and it is really slow. There seems to be plenty of space left on the C-drive but the D-drive is almost full. There are also a lot of program always running when I check the task manager but I don't know how to stop them or what I need and don't need. Should I get more memory? Or try to delete things? I don't want to get a new computar because the one we have isn't that old and it works fine otherwise.
