Hi, Thank you for your help previously. I purchased an Acer Aspire last February, it has 150gb Hard Drive, which it 'partitioned into Drives 'C' and 'D'
with 75 gb on each. The C drive states ACER 'C' but the D drive states ACERDATA 'D'.

The C drive is filling up and I have had a message saying uninstall some programmes, but surely I can just use the 'D' Drive? I am confused why it says ACERDATA?

Can anyone advise me what to do please?

Merry Christmas everyone.

Drive names can be changed easily, if that's all that's bothering you.

Just right-click on the drive, while in Explorer view, and name it whatever.

In fact, they don't even have to have a name...XP goes by the drive letter. Names are conventions for users who want to indulge.

What's taking up all the space on your C: drive? If you have a lot of music, videos etc just move them to the D: drive.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
