Data (D:) Disk use for storage

hp omen 15-ax010nd
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

 

I have the hp omen 15-ax010nd with several disks pre-installed.

On the moment I run out of space on my C: disk, but don't know 100% what the 😧 disk is for and how to use it properly.

 

Can I just put files safely away in that specific disk? (see image below)

If so, is there a easy way to move storage of programs (like SharePoint) or specific maps standard to this disk?

Thanks in advance!

Data (D:) Disk use for storage

Hi,


Your laptop came with Windows 10 Home OS.

Your Omen notebook comes with 1 TB 7200 SATA HDD (D:\) for storage - spinning mechanical drive, lower access and speed times & 128GB M.2 SSD as bootdrive (C:\) - static flash chip, fastest boot, access and speed time, as you have noticed.

Specs: http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/OMEN-15-by-HP-Laptop-PC/10862325/model/12100239/document/c051801...

You cannot just simply copy the program files to DATA D:, because they're operating system files. It'll make operating system corrupted.

You can map user file folders to 😧 so that files get automatically stored to D:.

But if you do, naturally access time to files and speed considerably reduces due to the fact that 😧 drive is rotating spinning HDD.

Please follow these tutorials to clean up C: safely, to free up space:
