Can I move Pictures folder to another drive on my computer?
  

I have a Vista laptop with 2 drives, both 250 GB. My C drive is almost full and if I could move my Pictures folder to D easily it would help. The folder is 113 GB. If I copy and paste it into D I imagine there could be problems when I start deleting the photos from C, especially as Windows Photo Gallery (which I use a lot) might not find them, also it would take a day or more to move so large a folder as Vista seems to take forever to do things like that. Also it often seems to tell me it cant copy photos without some of the file info so I have to OK that. Tiresome!
Therefore: 1) can I move the folder easily to D and import pics without having to navigate to D? 2) Will it upset the photo gallery?
I don't have any passwords etc as I am the only user, I only have about 5 GB left on C so must take action soon!
Thank you!

Click on the folder by right click. You will get an option as properties. Then go to the target section and select the path where you want to move them. IT will be done without any further concern.

No issue doing the copy paste from one drive to another if it takes time to copy paste the don't directly copy the folder. Go inside the folder and Copy the content and then paste it in the D drive.

Thanks
