Ive just bought a new Pc and its meant to have 250gb harddrive. I went into my computer and noticed that 60gb of that is for back-up (D: ).
I was wondering if i can get rid of D: altogether (or atleast cut it down to 10gb) an use that 60gb on the main C:/??

I have Win Xp MCE installed, the comp is from dell.

Cheers

Edit: or isit recommended that i dont partition?

60gig! The recovery partition is normally around 4-5gigs!

Is that partition just empty?

It must have been partitioned that way. Personally, I'd leave it there and use that for data so you can backup separately. I always partition a single boot drive to have the data separate from the boot partition. Here's the partitioning on this system, note that I have three partitions, the Windows/applications boot partition, my data partition, and a work partition.
