I have a Compaq (C:) Space free 212 GB Total size 289 GB
Next to it is Factory Image (D:) Space free 1.23 GB Total size 8.70 GB
Can you tell me why I have this D: drive? What does it do? I don't think my other computers had it.

Thank you Bruce. You're right. I did not get any CD's with the computer. So, I'll just leave it be.
The D: drive is what the manufacturer created. It is a partition that can take your machine back to the way it was the day your brought it home. Most vendors do not give you the CD/DVDs installed on the computer and just put them into this partition they create on your hard drive. They usually have a utility that will allow you to burn that partition to CDs and/or DVDs in case you needed to restore the computer. But the partition will remain unless you reformat the drive. Since you have so much free space on your existing C: partition I would just leave it be.

Your personal data should be backed up if you are not doing so now (thumb drives are really cheap now)
