Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, 2.792 GHz / 2047 MB
I have a hard disk of around 40Gb and partitioned it to the following:
Drive C:5Gb
Drive E:16Gb
Drive F:19Gb

Now my problem is that I installed my OS (windows Xp) to the Drive C: which is wrong because now im experiencing "Low Disk Capacity" my Drive E: acts as my "warehouse" or where i put stuffs and docs etc. and my Drive F: is not in use.

What i want to do is to copy the Win Xp OS and all the installed stuff from Drive C: going to my Drive F: and make everything boot in Drive F:

Is it possible??????

Easeus Partition Master will probably re-size your partition(s) allowing you to increase the capacity of C:

If you don't want to do that you could try cloning C: to F:, perhaps using XXClone which can make the target bootable.

EPM is available from http://download.cnet.com/Easeus-Par...

XXClone is available from http://www.xxclone.com/idwnload.htm

Both are free for personal use. Before starting any partitioning operation you should backup your critical files.

Please note that I have no affiliation with Easeus or
XXClone.

Good luck

the easiest solution would be to copy what is one drive E: to Drive F: Delete the Drive C: and E: partitions and recreate another single Partition of 21 Mbs and reinstall Windows.

Drive F: will then become Drive E: I take it Drive D: is your CD/DVD drive.

5 Mbs is way to small for Windows XP. 10 Mbs at the very least,

I think there was a little typo in #3 and this is what was intended:

"5 GB is way to small for Windows XP. 10 GB at the very least"

Couldn't agree more.

Yes, it should have been 10 GB.

If you are thinking of installing Windows 7 I would give some serious consideration to getting a bigger hard disk, 20 GB is not very much at all these days.

I decided to stay with XP since i haven't got a larger HDD yet. so i just cloned my system drive and placed it in a larger partition of 10Gb as you have told me to.

It runs a little slower than when i havent done anything yet but its bearable ^_^
