Your main partition C is where everything you download, install and do is located there.
The recovery partition is never used unless your system fails and you need to bring it back to factory defaults. To check it try this.
Go to Start then to Run
Type in compmgmt.msc and click Enter
On left side click on Disk Management
On right side you will see you hard drive.
Now I need you to take a screenshot and attach it to your next reply. Do the following to take a screenshot while the above is open and showing on your desktop.

The D drive should never change in size unless it is manually changed. Now since this is a laptop there should have been a warning in the first part of the user manual that says something to the affect that you should create a set of recovery disks for your system before doing anything else. This is a safe guard so that in case you lose your hd you have a second recovery set of disks to bring your system back without having to purchase a new OS disk or Recovery disks from the manufacturer of the laptop.

That recovery partition is on every laptop made now since there is no recovery disks sent with the systems anymore. This saves the manufacturer and you as the consumer money in the end.

There was no manual telling me what to do.
It maybe available as a download from the manufactures website.
