    Your drivers will automatically go onto the C:\ partition since they will be a part of the operating system itself. I generally load Windows, Office and my main productivity programs on the C:\ drive. All saved files and games I install will go onto the secondary partition. That way if (when) I need to reload Windows, all my games and saved data are safe on the second partition. It is also very unusual for virus/trojans to attack secondary partitions.

    I was in the same exact boat as you last week. Although i have 4 partitions. I just ended up doing another fresh install. I made the C drive 40gb this time and it's almost full again.

    Since i am new at this stuff too all i can suggest is maybe some 3rd party software to try. I haven't used any so i can't comment on any of them. I'm sure someone else in here has.
