I've just installed a second hard drive (74 gig Western Digital Raptor) in my PC, as I am running out of space on drive c: I use 3D rendering software (Cinema 4D) and therefore use a lot of textures in the form of jpg and tiff images which take up a lot of space, hence the second drive.At present the textures are stored in "My Pictures" which enables me to view the texture images within the program (Cinema 4D) prior to applying them. What I am trying to achieve is to store all my texture images on my second drive E:. Problem is though because these are no longer within "My Pictures" I am unable to view the actual images, all I get instead are the file names with either a jpg or tiff icon next to them.Obviously this is because they are no longer stored within Windows "My Pictures" file. I've tried moving the whole of "My Pictures" file from the c: drive to the e: drive but could still not view the images, they still only appeared as individual file names.
I assumed that when I installed the second drive it would be an extension of my c: drive (which is my system drive) but instead it seems to be seen as a totally separate drive. Can anyone tell me how to configure my second drive so as it's an extension of the original c: drive???????????? Operating system I'm running is Winows XP Pro.
Thanks for any help you can give
