Hard drive space allocation
Well good evening, or morning or whichever depending on your time zones but here in england its 5:20pm.
Im new to this forum and this is my first post so I shall start with a question.
I have a white Toshiba T130 13k, 13.3" and my 250gig Hard drive space has been allocated from factory to C:\ 116GB and D:\ 116GB.
Now I know C drive is where windows registry/system32 etc etc is stored and current and new programmes are also allocated to the C drive and my D drive is for recovery but there are restrictions on what you can store in D. I tried to back up my system when I first bought it to my external Freecom 160gig HD and the "ghost imagery" folder and system back up folder showed in the hard drive but were empty so I tried again as it prompted me to but im not sure if it worked, haven't checked but will do.
That's not the issue though, I don't need 116gig of space for recovery so I want to reduce the D drive space to 50gig or so and move the extracted space to the C drive to increase storage. 1- Im sure this can be done ive red on here about it and 2- How exactly do I do it cus im terrified ill destroy something on my new laptop.
Thank you in advance and I appreciate your time and any advice you can send my way.

So leave them as they are and have C for everything system related and move pics, music, video etc to data drive?
I don't understand why they've halved the space between 2 drives, My last toshiba had all the space on C drive.
As my systems new, had it a few weeks, I still need to gather all my stuff and buy an external disk drive to transfer my CD's, and get iTunes cus my car stereo is iPod ready so have to, even though windows disagrees with the software, couldn't get anything off my last laptop cus it just randomly stopped charging and couldn't be bothered to waste money trying to find out why so I chucked it.
