Low Disk Space Error!

I have a problem with my PC. I have two partitions C and D drive totally 20GB. I have installed Win XP Pro SP2 in C and D is for back up and for other stuff. C drive has 2GB free space after all installation and D has 15 GB.

Today, when I unzipped one big .rar file in D drive to open the file, I got the error message saying "Low Disk Space in C" and I got only 1MB space left. I was shocked to see it. I actually unzipped the file in D, why Iam getting Low Disk Space in C drive? My System Restore is already Off too. I closed the .rar incompleted file and opened again. But same message again "Low Disk Space".

I tried all, Free Disk Space, Defragmentation, Disk Check, etc but all in vain. Finally, I free 1GB space from D drive by using PartitionMagic. But the problem is I couldn't add that 1GB space to C drive. But I can add that 1GB back again to D drive with the same option I was trying for C drive.

This is my problem now. Can anyone help me to solve this problem.

Using: Pentium 3 1GHZ, 256 Ram

Thanks & Regards,

Hello and welcome to Geeks To Go

If disk space in your problem may be cleaning out all temp files would be a good idea. One very good program for doing so is CCleaner see if that helps. I have had troble adding to full partitions in the past with partition magic. What is the .rar file from and how big is it.
