How to specify what partition to install fedora 29 on?

I'm trying to set up a windows 10/ fedora 29 dual boot and am confused by the installation destination screen. I have partitioned some space on my C drive (where windows 10 is installed) of about 45 GB but Fedora doesn't seem to indicate that it will only use that partition on install. The installation destination simply shows my drive with a check mark and "sda / 43.95 GiB free" underneath it. Not very reassuring that it will leave the other partitions alone. Is there any way to specify which partition I want to use for Fedora or will it automatically only use free space? Any help would be appreciated as I really don't feel like having to recover my data. This seems like it should be much more explicit though.
