    Not exactly. The OP has one HDD and one SSD, if the computer they are posting about is the computer listed in the computer specs.
    Exactly.

    And note that the disk sizes shown in the diagram are precisely those that would be shown for a 128GB disk & a 1TB disk [the disks recorded in the OP's system specs].

    Agree. And this is also shown in the picture of Disk management in the first post.

    Dynamic partitions should be able to extend over several physical drives, but system partition is on SSD and wouldn't recommend to extend it over to HDD. Could influence system responsivity.. And I have zero experience with dynamic partitions...

    Do you guys have more experience with it?

    So each disk, the 1TB HDD and the 128GB SSD are setup as Dynamic disks then? This is a newly purchased system. Since it came this way, where was it purchased from? I don't know of any large PC vendors that would setup a system this way. No idea what they do in Europe though.

    Since they are Dynamic, can C: be changed to span both disks? Would that even be something to think about with the significant difference in architecture and performance between the SSD and the HDD? Seems to me a better option would be to buy a larger SSD.

    Spanning ssd onto hdd is pointless and will give big performance hit.

    Setting up with dynamic disks is not a good plan.

    PS I know EU can do some daft things but this is not EU specific - lol.

    You shouldn't have to worry about your C drive filling up, I have used 75GB on my C drive so far. That is with a lot of extra programs installed (over the course of 5 years), if you install any games, make sure your launcher of choice uses D as the default drive and that will go a long way for you.

    Additionally, you should use the D drive (larger one) for:

    Downloading and installing games.
    Downloads from your browser.
    Media usage: photos, music, videos, books etc should go here
