    I have a laptop and I partitioned "C" into "C" and "F". Now I want to move the non-system, non Windows OS files to "F". I need to know which of the folders now on "C" I can move. I've attached a screencap. Which of the folders can I move?

    I guess I should not move
    Program Files
    Program Files (x86)
    ProgramData
    Temp
    tmp
    Windows
    Windows.old
    winpe_x86

    Just add to the list:
    MSOCache
    PerfLogs
    Users

    What you can remove from the list:
    Temp (You don't have to leave it, but keep it for good luck)
    winpe_x86 (These are just the windows setup files that got copied to install Windows. You can keep it if you don't have the Windows disk and you want to keep a backup of Windows files in case something goes wrong - but keep it on F).

    May I just why you want to move them? Your probably much better off to the leave the system as it is unless your an advanced user. What size are the partitions you have created?
