any help? just a bit confused. Saw from another thread that the stock partitioning of the Y50 will give a very large C: drive of 887GB and a small D: of 24.9GB (I'm assuming the rest of the 1 TB is hidden).
Is it really best practice to make a smaller C: drive for just OS and programs and another larger D: drive for media and files?

" ...I'd like to create a recovery backup so I'll be safe. Now before I do that I'd like to re-size my 1TB HD partitions into a smaller C: drive for my OS and programs and a larger D: drive for my files and media (at least this is what I've read to do for best practices reasons)."
That may not be a good idea. Why not do the backup first before doing the resizing? Although you might not be able to restore using the backup but there are ways on how to do it rather than resizing first which might result in you not able to do the backup..
