I recently purchased an Asus Desktop PC with Win7 and I've realized that the computer came with two partitions - Drive C and Drive D.

Drive C - 372GB with all of Windows and my data stored on it.
Drive D - 550GB and is nearly empty.

I am wondering what the reasoning for this is, what the benefit is, if I should keep it and how it should be used?

If anyone can shed some light on this for me, I would appreciate it.

Thanks in advance,
Alex

Well you can put data like pictures and music and whatever you want on the D partition.........some people like to separate it from the Main partition

As for safety it would be a good idea to get another Hard drive and use it as backup.....as at the moment if that Hard drive you have has a problem or just dies you have lost everything
