Re: backup
How much you have free is useless information without knowing the size of
the data that your backing up. Not to mention that we have no clue what "D"
represents, hard drive, partition, DVD burner?

Re: backup
40 GB is hardly enough for a backup. My guess is your D drive is a recovery
partition and you should not be saving **anything** to it.

Get yourself an external hard drive.

You can get a 500 GB drive for well under $100.

You want to backup to a second partition on your drive?

That's far and away the poorest form of backup there is. It is always
possible that a hard drive crash, user error, nearby lightning strike,
virus attack, even theft of the computer, can cause the loss of
everything on your drive.

If your data is important to you, back up to external media that is
not kept attached to the computer. I recommend buying an external disk
drive.
