Splitting out data from the C drive that can reside on the D drive can be difficult.  But here are 2 simple things:

1. Change the location of your My Documents folder to the D: drive.  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310147

2. Change the location of your page file to the D: drive.  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307886

Might want to play with the free trial of this app....It's default view is largest to smallest. You can get a graphical view of what folders are taking up so much space. Might find something that you are not aware of.

If a folder shows a size of Zero, then chances are you dont have access to it, like the System Volume Information folder. Use the following to gain access to those folders......
