How to Move Files From One Partition to Another


When you drag and drop files from one partition to another, the files are copied by default. If you do not need the files in both locations, then you have to manually delete the original files. However, you can opt to move your files instead. This makes Windows copy the files to the new partition but then automatically deletes the originals, which saves you the trouble.

  • Hold the "Windows" key and press "E." This opens Windows Explorer.

  • Locate the files in the right-hand pane that you want to move.

  • Hold the "Ctrl" key and click each of the files to select them.

  • Right-click any selected file and drag them onto the other partition in the left pane. If you want to drop the files into a sub-folder of that partition, hover your mouse pointer over the partition, or sub-folder therein, and it will expand automatically.

  • Release the right mouse button and choose "Move here" to move the files.
