    Go to control panel select add/remove programs and delete any you are not using.
    Then go into your document's folder and move any files you rarely use to either a flash drive or burn to a cd or dvd. then delete them from your c drive. Also download/install/run ccleaner. Be sure that the registry is NOT checked.
    Hope this helps.

    Also run an anti VIRUs scan to remove any Malware taht occupies space in your disk. Also Defrag you C: hardisk to fix the the data's places in your disk.

    Buy another Drive if you wish for more bigger space then. Also if you didn't save anything to the D: and doesn't have any files on it. Then format the D: then transfer some file from the C: to it to free up some space on the C:

    You should perform "defrag" and "diskcleanup" utility on the computer. You can also uninstall all the unwanted programs from the computer.

    So you already run disk cleanup in conjunction with the sageset/sagerun switches?

    Why do i doubt that?

    And the *.tmp search and deletion outlined on the last page? Something tells me you've never done that either.

    If you don't ever want to use a disk, it need not be formatted. However, if you want to use it for storage or something, then it has to be formatted. You could even repartition it first for a more logical storage system.

    As for getting data from C: to D:, drag & drop works quite well.

    Open Disk Management (Start - Run - diskmgmt.msc)
    look in the lower pane (graphical display) and tell us what it details about your Hard Drives, post a screenshot too that would help

    ps try not to be so abrupt with the people that are assiting you
