Select a folder, right click it, select "cut", go to e-drive, right click, select "paste" et voila.

you can't transfer installed programs files to another drive and expect the application to work. Do a clean install of the programs you use to that other drive.

Shit like pictures, movies, audio files can be copy and pasted.

I was talking about the My Documents. Not the Progam Files folder and such.

Alot of programs (like Quicktime, RealPlayer) that put files in your Windows directory require that they be installed on the same HDD as Windows. Some programs are just picky like that. nothing you can do about it. As for folders like My Documents, you can put them on your new drive but Windows will only read out of your original C: drive folder for My Documents.

As for what to do with your new space, install miscellaneous programs on it like CD burning programs and games. And use it to hold your big files that you don't access often, like a backup drive almost

What size are both your HDDs?
What OS are you using?

XP comes with a File transfer wizard, that can transfer most directories that you may require. Whilst most applications have an option that prompts for the location you want to install (and will request to create that directory, if it doesn't exist on that location)....

Defragment, and clean you drive often,there might be unneccessary files and directories that are obsolete!
