I have an HP Pavilion dv6 with a 1TB HDD running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. Please ignore my sig, that's the desktop and probably outdated. Anyway the hard drive is split into 3 partitions and I do not like it. I like Green eggs and ham better than my hard drive setup. I have the main (C:\) sized at 578 GB and I have a recovery (D:\) sized at 21.6 GB and then I have the problem partition being (P:\) sized at another 578 GB. It looks to me like the P:\ drive is just an exact mirror of C:\ and this I don't like. I don't like it because now I'm looking at "45 GB" of free space when in fact I should have over 500 left. If I want to mirror my drive I have an external 1GB I can use. I don't need a backup system on the PC.
So what might be causing it? How can I stop it copying? Can I expand the C:\ partition wiping the P:\ without impairing the functionality of the existing software installed on C:\ partition?
