Windows 7: Disk partition

Disk partition

Hello,
Please excuse my jumping in this thread. I have a question(s). I purchased this Samsung Chronos used a few weeks ago. I don’t understand all of the research I have been reading on Disk partition. I have read in the Samsung user guide that the Disk partition can only be performed one time after the 1st startup. If I get a snip of the Windows 7 disk management screen, can I post it here and get advice on its status... if so, how do I take the snip?
“Windows 7 home premium SP1 64bit”
Thanks in advance,
Dennis

You should start your own thread regarding partitions.

You can partition your drive as you see fit, more than once if necessary.

Sorry for posting in the incorrect thread.
I have taken a snip of the Disk's... as I mentioned I don’t know what I'm looking at. Need an opinion if the disk's need to be partitioned.
Thanks!

The disk is already partitioned.

I see 3 of them.

You don't have to do anything.

You COULD make a D partition, but it wouldn't improve your performance.

Much appreciated, I will let it ride as it is... I was curious if it had been done and correctly. The performance is good. I went to this laptop from an old Gateway tower w/win 2nd addition.
Just so I donít screw up again on posting in a wrong thread... I'm experiencing the text size changing from 100% to 125%.
Thanks for your input!
