Following the request of one of our readers, we will see in this tutorial how to move your personal data (musics, videos, downloads...) to a location other than the system partition on Windows Seven.
Open your user folder containing all the classic folders of an account i.e. Images, Music, Downloads, etc. For example, to move the folder Videos, right-click it and then opt to Properties. On the tab Location, click on the button Move and choose the new destination of the folder like another partition.
Validate by clicking on Select a folder.
You can also directly enter the new address in the field provided for this purpose (faster if you only want to change the letter of the partition).
Click on Apply. Click on Yes to the message to create the folder,
then again on Yes to validate the procedure.
Wait for a few moments the time of copying the files, and then click on OK.
Repeat the operation (fastness it must be said) for all the files.
Please note that the user folder should not be deleted despite the fact that it appears empty to you. Indeed, it contains hidden folders and files (and/or systems) necessary for the proper functioning of your PC.
All your documents are now protected in the event of system crashes or data backup during reformatting.
