I seem to have survived using computers for almost 30 years with relatively little of the essential knowledge of the wretched devices or of the software that supposedly makes them useful. There are many (probably elementary) aspects of computers and computing that I should understand by now but don’t. For example; my laptop’s 150 GB hard drive appears to be divided into two, “Vista (C:)”, in which there are 23.1 GB of free space out of a total of 74.5 GB, and “Data (E:)” with 67.9 GB free space out of 73 GB total. My questions are, can some of that free space from drive “E” be transferred to drive “C”? What effect would this have on the computer’s performance and, if desirable, how to do it?
All comments packed with advice (or sympathy) will be gratefully received!
