Specs: Windows XP, 2 Mhz Celeron/1Mb
I purchased a larger drive for my desktop. How do I use Files and Settings Transfer wizard to put all of my programs/files on the new D: drive, and just leave WinXP SP3 on C:, nothing else?

Thanks again, Marion

You can't! by using the transfer wizard. The wizard will not transfer programs...only data files...

You must decide what programs that you really must have and decide as well whether they are really that important to transfer them or re-install them... I would all ways choose the fresh installation of the operating system and programs over the transfering or copying...remember transfering or copying will also do the same for any issues that you were having to begin with.

If you wish to...you may use the new harddrive manufacturers disc utillity to copy and move the entire partitions to the new drive. Follow the directions from that manufacturer for doing it!
