  1. Just got a new laptop and the hard drive is split in to two partitions C: which has the os and a small amount of memory(50GB) and D: (150GB). My problem is that everything I install or download goes to partition C: which is now full. How do I make all downloads installs go to D: from now on? I am using windows 7 premium.

    On most program setups will allow you do change the directory to where ever you want. If its not in plan sight the you will have to select a custom installment. if your taking about downloads from IE, Internet Explorer, when you download something you will have to save it as "save as" and select where you want it. If your talking about in FireFox you will have to look in the opinions, in the general tab you will see downloads.

    Sounds Odd. I have a new laptop, which shows Local disk(C) 408 GB free , and Recovery (D)
    2.3 GB of 15.9---and this all refers to a 500 GB Drive.

    Seems to me the reverse is true on this problem??????
