Dumb question, but try not to laugh too hard

I'm new to vista and newerish technology.

My laptop has 2 drives the C: and the D:

But nothing is saved to the D: and I just want to know what it is there for and what not. Any one want to bear with me and my ignorance?

Probably it is referring to your CD drive... put a CD in and then click on D in My Computer -- what do you see?

I'm pretty sure it's not my CD drive. It says D: (DATA) and it has 111G of 111G free

That is your secondary drive partition. What does C says? How big is C drive?

I think the whole hard drive would be a 250GB and they have partitioned it into two drives. The D Drive is there to store your documents which in case if your vista crashes, atleast you'll have your documents saved into D drive.

The partition drives are created, in case of emergency you have format your C drive, your data will still be safe as the system will not format the D drive (unless or otherwise done deliberately).

Think of it as having another hard drive in your PC.

Do I make sense here?

Oh and try saving something on the D drive and let me know.

Yeah I think that would be a DVDRW drive if you look at the side of the drive it should say on it.

My C and D are the same size. So the D is for backing up files right? Ok that's what I thought, but I didn't want to do something wrong and save stuff under there that shouldn't be saved under there

Just like I suspected, yes you can save the files there and infact test it. Save a word document on it and re-open it by going into the D drive and open the file and once you are happy, you can start saving files there
