Why would you ruin an other-wise solid machine by partitioning the Y510 harddrive in such a dumb way, then make it impossible to change?
With just updating Windows, I have just 3.45 gb free. I took off as much as I could before hand. (By the way, when will PC makers get it through their thick heads that we do not want all of this software pre-loaded!) I realize that the D drive is big, but if you ever have to use the one touch recovery, you still have to reload the majority of soft ware, so the storage excuse is out.
I bought this machine based on what I read about it on Lenovo's website, which did not mention the awful hard drive setup. My DVD drives run so loud (since I bought it) that there is no sense in even trying to watch a movie. But that's another matter.
I know I should have returned it when I bought it, but I really wanted it to work out.
Needless to say, I will not buy or recommend any Lenovo product again

Came with a small C: large D: .
As far as it not being Lenovo's fault, they set the partition. If the partition is changed the one key recovery won't work, and the recovery DVD won't work either.
Windows is is on the C drive by default and cannot be moved.
I'm not the only one with this complaint. Look in the forums and blogs.

Well, if you look, you answered 3 users in a response about this subject back in 2010. another thread in 2009 which was never answered. Just found the same problem dating from 2008.
Buts thats not my point. How can this issue be fixed? As I read through the threads, no one from Lenovo has an answer.

I have also, after reading through posts in your forum, that at some time Lenovo must have realized the issue, and changed the configuration from small c and big d to large c and small d. Is there a way for me to get this fix?
