My computer has a C and a D drive. The C drive only has 13 gigs allocated to it and the D drive has 133 gigs free. Almost everything on the C drive is used & the computer is not working correctly (can't download, open files, etc) because it says I need more memory on my C drive. I've removed some programs but it's not enough. Since we don't use the D drive at all & it's just 133 gigs sitting there unused, I want that to be on my C drive. How do I do that? I don't need 2 drives, just a single one is fine with me. Thanks!

You could use a program called partition magic. It will allow you to allocate space to the c: drive. I would recommend that first, try a disk clean up (Start>all programs>accessories>system Tools>disk cleanup) Check everything and let it go. Usually after the compressed old files, thats about 2 GB there. Transfer all your files to the other drive, and when you save things, save them to the d drive.

Why not just transfer the files that you don't use regualarly to the other drive to free up the C drive. It's as simple as copy and paste.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
