I have a computer of around 60 GB divided into C drive 30 GB and D drive 30GB.

C drive is getting very full but I believe most of the stuff on C drive is program material.

D drive is relatively empty.

The computer seems comparatively slow and laborious at times - well honestly - most of the time!

Can I shift programs from C drive to D drive without stuffing the operation systems?

I have found Firefox solved a lot of problems at one stage but it is also slowing down now.

No, simply because where everything is installed is stored all over the Windows Registry. With the vast majority of programs, you would need to uninstall it and then reinstall.

You may uninstall some programs and reinstall them on the D drive.
You may also install new programs to the D drive.
You may also resize the C partition by using Easeus Partition Master.

Before using the software I would clean up the drive by removing temp files. I would also defrag the drive/partition.

I recommend ATF Cleaner and then Auslogics Defrag.
