The Hiberfil.sys file, which can be very large, is a special system file that Disk Defragmenter cannot defragment. Therefore, the presence of the Hiberfil.sys file will prevent Disk Defragmenter from performing a thorough defragmenting operation.
Follow these steps to remove the Hiberfil.sys file from the hard disk:
1. Access the Control Panel and double-click Power Options.
2. Select the Hibernate tab in the Power Options Properties dialog box.
3. Clear the Enable Hibernation check box and click OK.
As soon as you clear the check box, Windows XP automatically deletes the Hiberfil.sys file from the hard disk. Once you complete the defrag operation, you can re-enable the Hibernation feature.

Is there anything else I can do to free up space? Most of my programs are on my 80 GB external HD. Of the 7.4 GB in my D drive, I still only have 537.6 MB free.

I also went back and reread this thread and caught that this is only a 7.4 GB hard drive ...its time to buy a new bigger hard drive..
how big is your C; drive...if it also tiny get a new bigger one and use HDclone to clone the drive including the whole operating system and everything else on the drive...
they are dirt cheap right now...I picked up a 320 GB SAMSUNG SPINPOINT for $43.00 just a month ago
