defective disc partion...

2008-08-20, 22:36 PM

I just read Mark's post about the way the disc is partitioned. Mine is the exact opposite of what he said.


I have 83.5gb available on my C drive with 105GB used and 27.1GB on my D:drive free...


this is a brand new device. Where should I be storing my data?

If you have the 27GB D: drive, you have the new configuration to resolve the small C: issue.  You should also have 12-16GB on the hidden recovery partition.

"I have 83.5gb available on my C drive with 105GB used"


Hmm, 105 GB used? Is this the factory setup? If so, could you check what's using the huge amount of space?


Lenovo is trying out a new partition scheme due to complaints that the original C: partition is too small as most people install programs directly to the C: partition. But as I understand it, the OS should now be installed directly to the D: partition, leaving the customer to use the space on C:. So the new partition scheme does leave D: partition with less space and C: more. Not sure why yours has so much stuff occupying the space though.

Rst of space is occupied by hidden partition for recovery. I suggest it's 120 GB HDD.

Vista could be only installed so that she thinks she's on C drive. You can give it it a try: install it on disk D and , voila, after a reboot disc D is already C.

Small C drive wasn't an issue nor a problem.

People not wanting to make two-three actions - that was the thing all this was about.
