I tried and eventually had to delete them then reinstall in the new drive; there must be a better way but I couldn't find it. * Some programs run only within their own folder, and don't use any registry entries. These programs can be moved to another drive simply by dragging their folder to the new drive. You'll also need to replace any shortcuts in your Start menu or desktop. * If the programn does have registry entries, you'll need to reinstall it to the new drive. After the installation, you may be able to copy content from the old program folder to the new one, but be careful of replacing any newly created .ini files as they may have path information that refers to the new install location

Once you backup files to an external hard drive can you delete them from the computer hard drive to create space?

It depends on the type of file you are talking about.If you back up your documents (Word, Excel) or photographs then you can certainly delete them from your computer hard drive once they're on the external hard drive. If you need them again you can simply plug the external hard drive to the computer in order to access them.If you're talking about program files than you have to consider whether or not the external hard drive will always be plugged into your computer. If you move a program file and then unplug the external hard drive then you should not delete the files unless you plan on plugging the external hard drive in (or leaving it attached) every time you want to use that program. If you don't mind accessing a program from the external hard drive every time you need to use it than you can certainly delete it from your computer hard drive. Otherwise, make a copy to the external hard drive as a backup in case you have computer problems and leave the original version you want to run regularly on your computer.

How do you add another hard drive in your computer?

To add another hard drive, Look at the jumper pins on the back of the new hard drive you wish to use as the secondary hard drive. Move the Jumper on those pins from MASTER to SLAVE to make the drive a slave drive and work under the primary hard drive. Now, open the computer after you have unplugged it and install the secondary hard drive, and make sure to hook it up to the IDE cable that is already hooked up to the primary hard drive, and hook it up only to the middle connector. The end connector of the IDE cable should already be in the primary hard drive so don't unplug it, just connect the middle connector of the cable that's already plugged into the primary drive to the secondary drive. Now, connect the power plug to the newly installed hard drive, plug in computer, and boot up. It should work just fine, and you'll gain more memory with that other hard drive!
