New PC - Split HD


Likes # 0

My pal has just purchased a new Acer Desktop with a 1tb HD. I have reloaded all of his progs & files but have just noticed via My Computer that his HD is partitioned into two sectors of about 450gb, one marked Acer C and the other Data D. I presume that the objective is for him to save his personal files to D. If so, why is the PC not already set up for him to do so i.e. why are his Libraries not set up on D? Leaving it as it is would appear to leave D untouched and therefore a waste of space? If what I am saying is near correct, how do we set his PC up to put his data and thereafter have the default save location on the D Sector?

Braebo - excellent tutorial. A totally different way of doing it to robinofloxleys post but nonetheless a worthy alternative method.

I might suggest that in this instance the original link would be the shorter method but I certainly picked up on a couple of good points from your video.

Hi Taff,

Thanks for the reply, I wasn't sure how it would be welcomed coming from a PC company so am glad it was taken in the spirit of trying to help which was what I wanted.

I for one prefer to watch videos as sometimes something obvious just doesn't seem that obvious!

Thank you again and I hope I can help out more in the future.

Best regards, Lee
