My computer tells me "D" drive is almost full and "C" drive is almost empty. How can I move data from "D" to "C" and what can be moved without compromising the function of the system? Thanks, wileycoyote.

Normally, the C: drive is where Windows is installed and the D: drive is a Recovery Partition which you don't want to mess with. It is normally "almost full" and nothing else should be put there.

Please post a screen shot of Disk Management before we do anything else. To do this:

Click on Start then Run, type diskmgmt.msc and press Enter. Expand thw window so the C and D drives are visible.
Make sure the Disk Management window has the focus.
Press Alt+Print Screen. That will capture the active window.
Start MSPaint - Start then Run, type mspaint and press Enter.
Press Ctrl+v to paste the picture in to MS Paint.
Click File then Save as and save it to your Desktop.

Start a new reply.
Click on the Browse button below the message input area.
Navigate to where you saved the picture, select it and click on Open.
Click on Attach This File.
Once uploaded, click on Add To Post to the far right of the uploaded file.
Scroll down and click Preview Post to verify the image shows.

It's not a good idea to recommend messing with drive sizes until you understand the partition layout of the drive. As I said, if the D: drive is the Recovery Partition then you don't want to touch it.

Let's wait and see if wileycyote comes back with that info before proceeding.

Wileycoyote; I couldn't send the diskmgmt you requested as the file is over 1MB. The (C:) is 64.29GB and has 56.69GB free space, 88% and the (D:) is a FAT32 with 20.22GB and has 1.58GB free space, 15%.

Thanks for your help, Wileycoyote
