I wasn't sure which was the best forum to post this in so I posted here - if it's in the improper forum please let me know and I'll move/open a topic in that forum. I have a 2-year old Lenovo Y510 Ideapad. Straight out of the box, Lenovo partitioned the hard drive into a 29.2GB C: drive and a 103 GB D: drive. However, everything is set to save/install, etc to that C: drive and after about two years, the drive is nearly full. I've tried moving things over to D: with limited/mixed success - I've moved desktop, music, etc to D: and copied all my program files over there, but what now? What's the next step? I'm still frequently getting low hard drive space errors and anything that I download to D is still opening/installing in C (for instance my fiancee needed me to update her phone...the update's too big for my remaining space on C: and won't install). Any ideas here? I appreciate any help I can get here and if I can provide more information to help troubleshoot this issue, please let me know.
