I want to copy all my files in my new laptop

Explorer | Level 3

Hi, my new laptop has 1TB but is arranged as C drive 101GB and D (data) 931GB. 

I want to copy all my Dropbox files to this laptop so that I can access anything even without a network connection. Dropbox wants to put everything in on the C drive which is not big enough. 

Can I just move all of the Dropbox folders to D? If not, how do I get round this? 

Thanks

Jane
