Hi there. I recently bought a new laptop computer and I’m wondering if it’s better to install programs on local disk C or D? For ages, I installed programs on local disk D, one reason was the lack local C drive storage, and the other reason was to help windows work better. As my new laptop computers provide more storage and also higher configuration, is it still a good idea to follow the old habit?
Another issue; I have a plan to make regular backups from my system for the case of emergency conditions, in this case, as I installed some programs on local D drive, is it possible to make a backup of them(program files and program files (x86) on drive D)?
What do you recommend me?! Should I uninstall the installed programs on D and install them again on local C drive? Which strategy works better for my windows efficiency?
Some people argue that if you have enough space on local C drive, you’d better to install all of the programs on C.
Here is some information from my laptop computer.
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3537U CPU @ 2.00GHz Sony Corporation, 12Gb Ram, GF Nvidia 735, 1tb hybrid H.D.D, windows 8.1
My Local drives spaces: (C=146 Gb, D=150 Gb, E=200 Gb, F=400 Gb), 82 Gb of my local disk C is free now.
