Can i install something on....

Post by Ross on Wed Dec 15, 2010 7:32 pm

So i was gonna start playing WoW again soon, and seeing as it takes up a good bit of space, would i be able to install it on my D drive instead of the C drive? Practically everything on my computer is on my C drive cuz thats where most stuff installs by default, and my D drive has 218 out of 218 gb free. Im not exactly sure what the D drive is used for, so.... if i installed WoW on my D drive instead of the C would it still work and would it have any downsides to not using C, or like would i have to do some extra stuff for it to work?

Of course you can install it on your D drive.. Seeing that you have two hard disks on your PC with space on them you can freely choose on which you install your stuff.

You can browse the destination for the installation to be on the D-drive. Or just change the installation path from C:\.... to D:\.... and write the rest.
As far as I'm concerned the D drive is an equal hard drive, just the same as the C one. All the stuff just goes on C by default.

That's how it goes with me and I see no reason why it wouldn't go so with you.

Yes. Actually it's even better to fill D: up rather than C:. As far as I know, if you top your C: drive up too much, it will cause lag while such thing doesn't happen with D:.

That's pretty true since, as far as I know, all the windows updates and such 'necessities' go on C: drive by default. Then if you fill the C drive with other crap there won't be room for the necessary stuff. Or something lol
