    I have two hard drives on my computer. E drive is for photos. My wife downloads the photos into C drive My Documents, My Photos. I would like to be able to right click on them ,Send to E drive. When I click on[ Send to],the E drive doesn't show. How can I add it to the list [Send to] ? My OS is XP Pro.

    open windows explorer
    expand your operating drive usually C
    expand documents and settings
    expand the your users name folder, one of the subfolders will be the sendto folder
    click on my computer to open drives etc.
    right click the E drive and drag it over the sendto folder
    select copy shortcut here

    edit: Make sure you right click

    A couple of options that I can think of. The easiest being adding a short cut to the E drive in the Send to folder. You can do this by doing a search of your C drive for the "Send to". I am guessing you are using XP. Choose the Send to folder from the account you\your Wife uses. Make a short cut for you E drive and place it in the appropriate Send to folder. You should be all set. Or there is a registry tweak if you are comfortable with modifying your registry.

    "Add Copy to Folder Option to The Context Menu
    Its possible to add a context menu option to copy a file to a folder by adding the following registry key:

    Start the registry editor (Regedit.exe)

    Move to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers

    From the Edit menu select New - Key

    Enter a name of 'Copy To' (don't type the quotes) and press Enter

    Move to the 'Copy To' :) key and double click on the (Default) value

    Set to {C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}. Click OK

    Close the registry editor

    Restart Explorer for the change to take effect (you don't need to reboot)

    If you now right click on a file/folder an option to copy to folder will be listed.

    This tweak will open up a small Explorer type window that gives you the option of moving or copying the item to any location on the PC.
