D-drive is specially desighned to hold your data, because in case of NOVA recovery all on C will be lost. Read pinned threads at the beggining of Ideapad section of forum.

How do you get things like downloads and stuff to automaticaly save there? And how do you safely move things like the "my documents" folder to the D: drive?

Re: C Drive and D Drive

log63, it's simple.

Every program that has an ability of file downloading (either browser or download manager) has this parameter - "download folder" in Preferences or Settings.

Also in context menu of "Documents" there's a "location" tab. The only tip in this is to create a folder that will hold data beforehand - Vista has a bug of case if that folder is created from the "location change" context menu.
