What is a hard drive?

Question

Hi

My original hard drive (6.4GB) was replaced by a 60GB hard drive by a computer engineer, in order to get more disc space, especially in the C- drive. But even after the installation of 60 GB hard drive, the C-drive has only 1.99GB space (which was the original space) and the D-drive has 55.2 GB.

I need more space in C-drive for installing various applications .

I would be grateful if you could help me in partitioning and creating more space in the C- drive.

Many thanks

Yours sincerely

BR Skinner
