Morning Chaps,
Well I've bit-that-bullet and purchased a Toshiba L300 1AQ,250GB-HDD 2Gb RAM which ***so far*** seems to be playing ball very well. One query I do have though, on my old Evesham lappy (and everything else I've seen with XP OS when you look at computer/HDD it shows just one - 'c' drive. I'm a little perplexed as to why, as it's sold as a 250GbHDD it's showing 2 drives (apart from the DVD)- Vista 'c' and Data 'e'. Can someone enlighten me please?

Thanks

Of course I have. As a new Vista user though, and 6 years since I last purchased a Laptop, I was very surprised to see the split HDD.

I'm not complaining though.

I also have a 500Gb external HDD to store images/backups etc etc as well as the old Lappy and a desktop PC...

Both my Toshiba laptops came with the hdd split in two, and very useful it is in my view.
As long as you don't mess with the recovery folder there should not be a problem.
