    Your laptop only has one hard drive but it is partitioned into two parts (C and D). Laptop manufacturers often do this so they can put restoration software on the D drive. Typically they will partition the D drive large enough to hold the installation/restoration software and not much more. If, for some reason the D drive has lots of room on it, you can use a product like Partition Magic to re-partition the C and D drives and move some of the free space from the D to the C drive.



    Good luck.

Hi,

You can redirect all your data to be saved into drive D and even downloads. Please look for the preferences of all your application software (can be seen in tools, option, change the default drive in Save In menu). Now, to free some space delete all temporary files from Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Cleanup. Hope this gives you an idea.

Best regards,
Rosener

I like to xchange my HDD 40gb on my acer 3260 travelate into 20gb HDD


The smallest new hard drive you can buy today is approx. 80 to 100 Gb.
You may be able to buy 2nd hand 20Gb ones but you don't know how long they will last for, it is a bit of a risk.

What size drive is in it now? The user manual should tell you what size drive it can use. If you are not sure, the best thing to do is to go back with the same size. The brand does not matter. Is your hard drive IDE or SATA? What is the model of your laptop?
