    I have DD10. I have experimented by making a data partition (first blood).

    However I would like to have Windows fully & exclusively in one, all other progs in another, and all data files in a third.

    I guess that Windows should stop in C drive. I can see how to make another drive, but how can I safe & easily move all progs into it? Surely not by installing ad hoc?

    Hello vinyamar777,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Partition and Disk Managing Software.

    I'm afraid that Acronis Disk Director Suite 10.0 does not allow to transfer programs from one location to another separately from the operating system. Most probably you will need install all the applications again into another partition, because the operating system has registry entries related to each of them.

    Thank you.

    Have I understood you correctly, Acronis, namely, I create 2 partitions, making, say, C, D & E.

    I move all data to, say E, uninstall all progs from C & reinstall them in D, and this should, theoretically, leave C as Windows only?
