I do work on my laptop that uses a lot of disk space, and my c drive always gets full and i clean it up a lot. Recently, there hasnt been anything to clean up, really. But thats not the problem. My E drive has 931gb worth of storage whilst my c drive has 108. It annoys me because I wish I had the storage on my E drive for my C Drive. And the E drive is meant to be smaller than the c drive. Lol. Forgive my grammar, nobody cares on the interenet.

Right.
You've simply not used your second drive.

Also, you REALLY need to move some data off the C. You have basically 0 free space, which is killing the lifespan of that 120GB SSD.


And yes, a 3 second video is annoying and inefficient...:(


What do you use this system for?

I make music and game development and gaming, but gaming has been breaking away from me. Yes, I agree, I need space off the c drive. The fact that I havent used my second drive is anoyying because with 1tb almost I think it can do something but really its supposed to be a partition of my c drive for emergency situations.

It is NOT just an emergency partition, it is a whole other physical drive, of 1TB. All of it empty, except for the (wrongly placed) System Reserved partition, the boot info.

In File Explorer, open up that E drive.
Create a folder...call it GameDev. Or whatever you choose.

Then, open one of your development files.
Save As...and save it to that folder you just created on the E drive.
