I recently bought a new machine with WinXP Home preinstalled. Once I got it home and booted it up, I found that the HDD was partitioned into 3 drives,C: D: & E:.
Bots C: & D: are about the same size, D: is named 'Backup', E: is tiny. ( 1 GB).
My questions are, is the D: Drive really a backup drive? i.e. will the OS automatically backup data on C: to D:? Can I repartition the HDD to make just 1 logical drive without having to reinstall everything?
I don't want to start playing with FDISK and things like that unless I know what is likely to happen.
Sorry for asking what may seem a dumb question, but having come from Mac / Win2K environment I'm not entirely sure what XP is doing.
Thanks in advance
