Hi, for the last couple of weeks my computer has been running really slowly. It keeps telling me that my hard disk drive is full and at 0% free space and to clean up old files and remove any programs I don't use. Well, I defragment and clean up my disk weekly and also I have removed all programs that I do not use or need. However, my computer is still running very slow and it still keeps giving me messages that my hard drive is at 0% free space. I have a Sony Vaio with a 100GB hard drive. I am confused at it tells me that my C drive is at full capacity at 30GB and my D drive is at 60Gb with 45 GB free. I dont know what the D drive is for? I thought it was 100GB on the C drive? Please help.

For reasons best known to Sony, their recovery CDs partition the drive into two different sizes and then use one of them to recover the system to factory default. After that, the programs wipe the D drive and leave it like that.

You can use programs like Partition Magic and what not to resize the C drive to wipe out the D part, but if you don't know what you're doing with this program it can upset the system to a point where it won't boot at all.
