    Not sure where to post this question...New Samsung laptop has 99gb of space on c drive and 350 gb on d drive and is almost empty. Shouldn't most of my space be on the c. I thought that the d was just to save system back up???

    Thanks, Joe

    Yes, you are correct, but I would check with the OEM (Samsung) and/or the place you bought it.
    It could be a "Returned" machine and was not cleaned up right.

    That does seem odd for an OEM laptop, but there's nothing to stop you from moving your documents folder to D: and installing some programs there as well.
    D: is most often designated as a recovery partition, so see if there are recovery files there.
