I am trying to figure out what the correct / appropriate partitioning and use of the hard disk ought to be on a Presario V3700 Notebook. The machine has 160 gb hd and 2 gb memory. It is running Vista with SP 1
At present it seems to have data and non data (programs, systems etc stuff) all on C which is partitioned such as to be 138gb. On the D partition we have only 10.1 gb and that has only 1.93 gb free - the rest being a recovery file.
Is this normal / standard / does it matter? I am used to separating data and the like from programs and systems bits and pieces - between two partitions C and D of roughly equal size.
at times the machine is a bit slow and I fear there is a huge amount of searching, indexing and goodness knows what going on in the C partition because all the data is there.
How lost in space am I here ????
