Troubleshooting... a little bit of everything
Need some advice... I have a computer that has an SSD for C: drive and an HDD for D: drive. The SSD was installed (not by me) for startup purposes only. However, it is almost full because this person would install software and allow it to write to the C: drive, by default I'm sure. So now this SSD that is the C: drive has folders like Program Files, Program Files x86, Users, Windows, and a few more. The D: drive also has folders with similar, or possibly the same, software installed. I need to get this SSD drive to startup windows (Win7 Ultimate) only.
How can I get everything else off without messing up any of his software? Windows is not owned... therefore I cannot just wipe the drive.
Another question... he wants to go to the free upgrade of Win10 but I cannot do that until I get space cleared away from the SSD. The SSD is like 120GB and it has 7GB left. His D: drive (the HDD) has over 400GB free. Can I download the Win10 to his D: drive and install it later to his C: drive (the SSD)?
One last question... is there a way to default your primary drive (for software) to point to the D: drive instead of the C: drive? This is what got him in trouble to begin with.
Thanks for any advice. I know that I know the answers to these questions but I am currently drawing a blank. For real.
