    Well I have only 24.3GB remaining in my C drive, and I was wondering, I've already 'donated' the C drive a bit of the D drive's space, so I was thinking of taking the remaining 18.4GB of my D drive and giving it to the C drive.


    Which boils down to this: Does the D drive actually serve a purpose and would it matter if I got rid of it so to speak so I could give more GBs to the C drive?

    Sounds like it's all on the same hard drive, but with two partitions. Perhaps the second partition is a recovery partition. If you open My Computer, does it have a name? For example, "RECOVERY"?

    Ah yes it does infact seem to be a partition, and it's simply called 'DATA (D', and has no files on it what so ever.

    In that case, I think you were meant to use C: for Windows and Program Files, and D: for your data.
