Yeah, just compy your main files from c: to d: that simple.
also, download a program called CCleaner, it will remove some unwanted temp internet files etc, and you will be surprised how much memory you can recover just by deleting the temps.

Also, if you dont know where most of your memory has gone, use "treesize" free software and it locates where most of the space is going to which allows you to easily locate them and remove/relocate them

yes you can trsf space from d to c
by using some basic partition s/w like EASEUS Partition Manager which is free version,
1. copy all files from d to some where else
2. delete d
3. extent c (as much as available, free from d)

thats it enjoy!

Thanks for the suggestions
I tried the Standard XP Option as per Smiley001 and this freed sufficient space at least for the time being.

A laptop or notebook is a portable personal computer with a clamshell form factor, suitable for mobile use. Although originally there was a distinction between laptops and notebooks, the former being bigger and heavier than the latter, there is often no longer any difference. Laptops are commonly used in a variety of settings, such as at work, in education, and for personal multimedia. A laptop combines the components, inputs, outputs and capabilities of a desktop computer, including the display screen, speakers, a keyboard, and pointing devices (such as a touchpad or trackpad) into a single unit. The device can be powered either from a rechargeable battery or by mains electricity from an AC adapter.
