Programs seem to load into the 2nd partition

  jack 08:21 16 Jul 2009

but still work.

My main hard drive is in two partitions
'C' is the default system drive as is normal and the larger second part which calls itself 'E' is where the data is kept
[I named it 'Store' how original is that?
'D' is part of the USB card reader' why Windoze did that is anyone's guess]

Any way I notice that if installing a program the various files are routed to 'E'[store] not 'C'[system]

It makes no difference- stuff still works.
I wonder why Windoze 'chose' to work that way?
Any one want to hazard a guess.

Most programs give you the option of telling the system where you want to install the software - sometimes you haver to opt for customised installation - and it would be interesting to see what you default is. However, you can then change it from E:\ to C:\ or not as you wish. Frankly, I prefer to have a third virtual drive for my software so thst, when I have to reinstall the OS, its a smaller partition and you don't lose all your software setings when you reinstall.
