    Its simply the way Acer chose to setup the PC, & name the drives.
    You can locate/move your data files to the D drive, or use D for any
    backups, or when installing a program choose Custom install & install to D
    rather than C

    Hi David,

    D: is simply storage space. Think of it as having two bookshelves instead of
    one to store books on. Create folders as desired on it to store files of
    your choosing. If desired, you can also remap things like your User
    Documents files to automatically go there (just right click the folder,
    choose properties and check the location tab).

    My C: drive was almost full, so i decided to put my pictures into the D
    drive to free up space and maybe speed up things.Now the Pictures folde
    has been replaced with Data (D:) in the start menu,and I can no longe
    import pics from a camera or memory card.However i can open a folder t
    view pics then move to other folders (documents for instance)...but
    want my Pictures folder back.Also when I open Data (D:) there are tw
    picture folders there in the favourite links menu, which I don'
    like.They both link to the same pic files.I wish I'd never bothered
