How to move games or applications already installed in another partition, when we no longer have free space on part C - video tutorial

Hi friends, in today's tutorial we will learn how we can move applications already installed in another partition, other than the partition with the operating system. Many of you probably still have old hard drives, with little space allocated to partition C or even though they have a large capacity hard drive, they have allocated to partition C only 30-40 GB of recommended capacity for the partition that will contain the operating system. In time, we get to install all kinds of applications, games and free space on the C partition will be insufficient so that when starting the PC we will see the message "Low disk space" in the lower right part of the screen. What can we do in such cases?
We use clean files start with the utility temporrare CCleaner which we already have a tutorial we defragment your hard drive. For those who don't know, everything we have on the desktop will take up space on partition C. We can move files, movies, music or whatever else we have on the desktop to another partition to make more space in partition C. And if these methods do not helps in "recovering" free space, what can we do?
We go to uninstall unnecessary applications that do not use them frequently with the help of Revo Uninstaller or we can use Steam Mover application that I decided to present you a tutorial today.
Steam Mover allows moving applications or games already installed on another partition of our computer. After moving they remain fully functional. How does this app? Basically we move the folder containing the files necessary for running applications or new game chosen location, leaving the original location of the folder just some shortcuts / links to the destination or the location where I have chosen to move.
Doing so with applications and games, placing them location, we automatically have more free space on partition C

NOTE: Before you move any app or game, make sure that they do not have services running and they are oprite.Aplicatia can be used on operating systems Windows Vista and Windows 7. We assume no risk of data loss or damage caused by using this application. Using this application will assume the entire risk of its use and its consequences. There are some applications that can not be moved using this software. There is a list of applications or games that may or may not be moved, so we suggest you to test the application before using VirtualBox. It is possible to have problems moving game developed by Valve Software. This software can move applications and games only on NTFS partitions
Remember, if you have suggestions, complaints or additions do not hesitate to write in the comments box, de-also if you met the comments box a user has a problem and you can help him, do not hesitate to do it, the only way we can do this place better, see the comments box!

  5. There is software to do backups to an application (with the license and setting) and then move to another pc?

  6. Hi Adrian, the tutorial is good, I would also have a request if possible, maybe one of you can make a tutorial on how to make the settings of video clips from ATI for game performance (I mean ATI CATALYST Control Center) … I have a cracker from ATI Radeon 9250/256 mb AGP 8x and it leaves something to be desired in games, and possibly an upgrade suggestion to it would be good on the AGP slot, ms for understanding, good luck

  7. Congratulations for. tutorial.
    Somehow know a solution for games to be functional after re-installation of Windows? Because not all go, for example Red Alert 3 ask languge pack, and if I'm not mistaken and must appear in the registry.

  10. Nice tutorial

  11. FIFA 11 goes if you move? As as you know so I moved it earlier from one partition to another and gave me an error when I moved on D. was not installed correctly. And by the way if I delete those in the C folder and shortcuts where they stayed longer running games and applications in C?

      It's logical that we move applications will not work if you delete shortcuts from C??? If you go deleted, the software no longer made there? What you confuse you some shortcuts for a few kb?

    … Folks, let's get used to having at least two hdds in the computer… a small one of at least 60 ghb where we put the operating system and the rest "n" hdds as the power supply allows us, but especially the bag… the idea is that you can install most programs on a partition other than C and the downloads do not have to be done on the desktop, ie C as we recommend default almost all programs… even on videotutorial.ro we saw that everything is downloaded to the desktop and it is installed in C… without malice 🙂 ..it is certain that when a reinstallation of the operating system some games or programs will work and others will not, but it is a great thing that at a new installation certain utilities work… not to mention a game like World of Warcraft for example where you have to download for half a day all the choices… in conclusion, as I wrote the other day INSTALLATION is very important… otherwise it's good

    … The idea is that it recognizes almost all the hardware elements on an ubuntu support with which you have to struggle to plug it in pr not to mention the facilities of pre-installed programs or BACKTRACK

  22. Hello Adriane.Eu follow all the tutorials that you make and thank mult.Am a question, namely whether reinstall Windows and of course the C partition will be formatted so it will delete shortcuts will work apliactia? Example I have moved a C to D game simply everything I held down the mouse right and pulled the game folder and partition D after moving icon I deleted the game and played around D I opened the folder and looked for the application that I gave right click and I made another icon and now the game goes perfect.Precizez I did all this from a distance as I live in Paris and all that I've done in my son's computer in Romania.Eu use TeamViewer free version, and by the way I saw videotutoriale . ro a videotutorial with a program like teamviwer but very much on most misunderstood and confused and where you have specified that the temviwer can not do the same things than platita.Asta version is false that I for example send video or music files simply and quickly, to write and speak and do and conversation and good quality video and of course do all this with temviewer assistance and free.

      Who has free time and wants to learn IT (computer, smartphone, tablet, tricks) here in our tutorials found over 800 can be made as well, not least the video and audio quality is better than any found on net (most of them tooth).
      Please wait.

  33. Question: I want to move from C to D: \ user \ _name \ …… is it possible? last year I did something stupid and I had to reinstall windows again. I sit and think that after moving it loses the connection with OS which is in C then what's the point of partitioning. That's how I suffered last year and I didn't get my hands on "pc" for a year and two months because I lost valuable programs for me. There is the possibility to separate OS from other programs (as much as logically possible and functional) I think about OS security but also about IOPS. If you could make a topic about the connections between the partitions. I apologize if I was upset with something but I am a beginner in the field. a lot of what you do here

  37. I want to know about the STEAM program MOVER if some programs move to another partition after formatting C: drive where the game has been moved or the program will work as

  38. Program works well, but carefully, one thing has not said here is very important! For those who want to move a game backups are all on the C! The hidden directory: Program data / blindness / 64. In case you wish to restart from the last save (obviously), it is necessary for salvation to be copied and pasted over here executable new partition! Luckily I discovered only after I had a headache!

  39. Good find,
    What gives me this error transfer system?

  40. Back saying I 7 your Windows, yet it does not work.

    • Read the note in the text above tutorial. You did not give more details than using Windows 7. You did not say what error you appear just as you appear. What applications have you tried to move etc.

  41. hi, if you use this method to move these applications and reinstall Windows (applications) will work on the new windows, thanks in advance for any response.

  42. When I try to move a prog. eg skype me something with an error after 5 level, but I move the file remains the same on the disc C.

  43. An application for windows 10 exists?

  44. Is there any application that moves the entire C partition to another HDD / SDD or a new partition?
