    I have been trying to download video from my movie camera to Corel Video Stdio 4. After an hour of processing I get a message "No Storage To Load BB!!". I assume this means that I don't have enough space on my C drive. My C drive has a capacity of 97.2gb of which only 7.94 is free. My D drive, which I call my data drive, has a capacity of 292gb of which 192gb is free. How can i transfer space from the D drive to the C drive?

    Are these logical drives? In other words, do they reside on the same drive and you've just partitioned them out, or are they two separate drives? I think the space on your C drive needs to be looked at regardless, because it may get to the stage when it's going to cause you stability issues with the drive being so full.

    If the two "drives" are actually two primary partitions on the same hard drive (or SSD) you shrink the "D drive" partition, move a partition if necessary to get the newly unallocated space immediately beside the "C drive" partition, and then expand or resize C to include the unallocated space. I use the free EASEUS Partition Master for these tasks.
