Hello,
I just had my laptop for repair and payed for a larger storage (1TB).
When I checked my computer i noticed that the local disc C shows 499 GB and the local disc D shows 431 GB.
Is this correct or should I have a bigger size in C?

I would really appreciate your help.

Thank you

Hello,

You can safely use the laptop with this partition table since most operating systems won't take more than 100GB.

I would have set a smaller primary partition, perhaps 200 GB/ 800GB or even 100/900 but you definitely don't need a bigger one.

Cheers,
