The default name for the data partition on an HP eStout student laptop is D:\student data. To rename, perhaps to remove the space and replace it with an underscore as in the following example:
    1. Launch a command prompt (Run as administrator)
    2. Type and execute: mklink /J d:\student_data “d:\student data”
