If I am understanding correctly I need to edit only from my computer?  I am on a new laptop and the hard drive has a c and a d. I've never had one with two parts before. See screenshot.  Normally I  place folders and save edited files on the desktop (backed up periodically to two externals) but it appears that only uses the c which has very little free space .  Do I need to save the raw (to work on) and edited files onto the d part  ?  The c only has 118 GB (30gb free) and the d has 931GB.  There isn't anything on the d at present but the Bridge Cache which I put on earlier in this lesson.

Yes, the C drive must strictly only be for your Windows.  EVERYTHING else must go on your D drive.

And Brian will have a fit if he sees you say that you keep everything on your desktop.  Never do that, it's bad for your computer's performance (although worse for Macs than PCs).

Ok while I am changing things I just as well change it all lol.  We don't want Brian to have a fit.  Although I don't keep everything on my desktop....I probably do keep too much and I can see it really isn't necessary and I can easily do it different. My other computer was from 2012 and it didn't have the two parts.  D was the cd drive.... Off to see about fixing my issues.  Thank You for clarifying.  It will be much easier to correct now while I barely have anything on this computer.

I found it  Program data 2.12 GB  I'm sorry that was a typo.

Ah, that sounds more like it.

This all looks very normal.  I'd say you've done everything you can.

So your job, from now on, is to prevent C drive filling up any more.  Make sure all your photos go on D drive.
