Transferring to Windows 7

My new laptop says it has two hard disk drives: OS (C:) with 31.7 gb free of 58.5 and Local Disk (D:) with 397gb free of 397. The C: drive has the whole Windows7 file structure in place with the users and the documents folders and the libraries, whereas the D: drive is totally empty. And all of the programs seem to default to put everything in the C: drive. Which doesn't seem to make any sense. [more inside]
