Please help me to re-install Office on my D drive to save
space on my C drive:

Dear Microsoft Community,

I need your help. My email is crashing because my C drive
is too full. I am trying to transfer files and programs
to my D drive.

I have Microsoft Office XP Professional running on my
Windows 2000 Professional Operating System, and I have
created many documents in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint (but
I have not yet used Outlook). The documents I have
created, I have saved to various folders on my D drive and
on my new external drive (I have a laptop).

Since I need to create as much space as posssible on my C
drive (my email in Outlook Express is crashing because my
C drive is too full and I have too many messages == but
that is another story), I want to uninstall the Office
program and re-install it on my D drive, but my question
is can I do this and not create any problems?

As I said above, the documents I have created are saved in
folders, but my concern is if I uninstall and re-install
Office, will I be losing any valuable documents I have
created? I do not need any of the templates or other
default things that came with Office. I just need to be
able to open and edit the documents I have created with
Office after I uninstall Office and re-install it to my D

Thanks very much if anyone could be so kind as to help me
with this question.

Warm regards,

Lewis Weiss lewisweiss(removethis)
