I am confused, I keep submitting questions and this site keeps showing me my questions, do I need to go to my Email for the answers, or is this a bogus way of getting emails to sell advertisers?

You do not need to go to you Email to get an answer. In fact if you leave your Email address there is a very good chance it will be deleted.

You submit a question and wait for some kind soul to come along and answer it.

However, having look at you question it is little windows that no one has answered it as it doesn't make a lot of sense.

Explain what you mean by default drive?

The only default drives in Windows are those defined by the user and it is usually a default for a particular purpose.

You said in your other Topic:

"My Vista has a 9.9 GB D recovery drive as the default drive, my C drive has 268GB free,"

All drives in the operating system - Vista in this case - are logical drives, but the word logical is usually omitted.

You have a brand name system that has at least two hard drive partitions, the largest one has been assigned the C drive letter and that's where Windows itself is running from, another small hard drive partition has been assigned the D drive letter, on the original brand name system supplied physical hard drive software installation.

The small hard drive partition, D, is labelled the Recovery partition because it has sufficient data on it such that it can be used to re-install all the software that was originally on the largest partition, the C drive, when you bought the computer

You don't alter or add to the data on the Recovery partition at all if you want to be able to do that.
The D partition - drive - has a little more than enough free space such that it won't trigger Vista to display a Low Disk Space warning for the D drive.
