Question about Lenovo IdeaPad Y510 Notebook
C drive full. Drive not used. Have 104g on d drive. Why did Lenovo have the Vista Windows loaded onto the c drive and all downloads get saved automatically on c drive, when c drive has such a small gig, and yet d drive has 104 gig and nothing is saved on it. another thing is i have been told that i must now go to the expense to have the two drives made into one. all i need to know is this what i have to do. why do i have to now pay to get an answer when this is a fault of Lenovo. Regards pam
You can't add to the C:\ drive. Even using windows disk management if you shrink the D:\ drive then it will only let you add the newly freed up space to the last partition on the disk which happens to be the D:\ drive.
This computer is setup this way so that the novo button can completely reset the C:\ drive if there was a problem. All your documents and stuff should be on the D:\ drive so that if you ever reset the PC via the novo button then you still have all of your files. The problem is that if you didn't know this you would not have changed default storage locations in all of your programs and then you will lose everything if you use the novo button. Another problem with this setup is that you have to change the install location of every program to the d:\ drive and some programs won't let you choose the install location.
You should copy all of your personal files to the D:\ drive.

ok here may e you really dont have to worry all that much nor do you have to buy a new drive
there are many software on the net that can help you
may be you can have some disk management software like Partition manager or Partition Magic and you can change the drive space without even leaving your comfortable windows platform GUI and increase the Disk space to your choice
a word of caution though ALWAYS BACK UP BEFORE ANY ACTIVITY LIKE THIS
hope this helped
