Disk Management Question

On my laptop, my hard drive is split into 3 volumes:

Windows (C:) 24.69GB Free Storage (F:) 40.56GB Free Data (D:) 2.83GB Free

Would I notice any improvement to my laptopsperformance if I reduced the free space on the Storage (F:) and increased the Windows (C:) volume? Or would it make no difference?

Yes if the C partition is almost full. I would suggest you buy a USB external hard drive and copy the contents of D and F to it and then delete the contents of D and F and merge them into Partition C.

Your internal hard drive appears to be rather small is the laptop rather old.If so a system reinstall to factory settings would improve matters.
