Most windows type of programs can be moved but it is not as easy as it seems.

I'd uninstall them and then re-install them to where you want with the original disks.

Failing that one could try to move parts and re-edit registry and it may work. I have done it a number of times but you will have to know how the program works and it can't be copy protected usually and you have to be careful with registry.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

If these are installed programs the only safe way to move them is to uninstall them from C and re-install them to the new location.

are these two separate hard drives or partitions on the same drive.

Why do you want d: as your default?

Usually when I see posts like this its due to someone not understanding how drives boot and it becomes a big mess with data loss.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

I am guessing D is a new bigger drive. Hd manufactures have free utilities to clone the old hd to a new one.

I use maxtors maxblast.......100% perfect every time.

If you just want to replace d with c, maybe you can choose some free clone software to help you. I think clone all the partition is safer.
