The query I have will have many of you experts wondering if I've ever used a computer before but it may come as a suprise to learn that I had a Sinclair ZX81 when they first came out and have had some form of computer ever since, it's just that I have just "used" them and never got round to understanding how to set them up correctly.
I have just purchased a Toshiba Satellite P200-123 laptop with amongst many other wonderful gadgets a 400GB hard disk drive (apparently made up of 2 x 200GB drives). When I look into "computer" it shows 3 hard drives (Vista (C:) 93.1GB (55.5GB free), Local disk (D:) 186GB (186GB free) and Data (F:) 91.6GB (84.4GB free), the F: drive was empty but I have already copied many of my files to it from my old computer but this is the reason for the query, have I put them in the right space, if not, what do I put where?? The part I do understand (I think!!) is that the C: and D: drive are physically one drive partitioned into two but after that I'm lost. Any mew programs that I've installed haven't been a problem as I just let the computer install them in the "recommended" folders but when I copy file such as my documents or my pictures, have I done the right thing by putting them in the F: drive. (p.s. I hope I have posted this query in the right forum, if not, I apologise in advance!)
