750GB HDD need confirmation



Is it correct or not? For a 750GB HDD, it shows only 279gb for C drive.

We can't tell you that. It depends on how it was configured. Post a screenshot of Disk Management.

You have 1 hard drive with 4 partitions:

Looks normal.

You can reduce that to 3 by eliminating D and adding that space to C. Your choice entirely.

Nothing wrong as it is.
