You could move the default location of 'My Documents' folder & contents to your D disk. Is D a partition or a seperate hard drive?

As Chegs ® has asked, what OS do you have?

Chances are that you have one hard drive with two partitions. However, click here
for a free download of an prog that carries out an audit of your p.c. and creates a computer profile listing both installed hardware and software. You will then be sure of your computer spec. On page one of the resultant profile look under 'Local Drive Volumes' and it will give you details of your hard drive/s configuration.

Oh, and the prog is under 2.5mB so it shouldn't make your space problem much worse.

Start, right click My Computer, Manage, click Disc Management.

If you have only one drive, it will be Disc 0, and will display the partitions.

Disc = Disk.

Applies To This article was previously published under Q310147 microsoft.com Knowledge Base
SUMMARY
This article describes how to change the default location of the My Documents folder in Microsoft Windows XP.
MORE INFORMATION
The My Documents folder is your own personal folder in which you can store your documents, graphics, and other personal files. When there is more that one person using the computer, Windows creates a My Documents folder for each user on the computer.
By default, the target or actual location of the My Documents folder is C:\Documents and Settings\user name\My Documents, where C is the drive in which Windows is installed, and user name is the currently logged-on user. You can change the target if you want My Documents to point to a different folder location.
Change the Default Location of the My Documents Folder
To change the default location of the My Documents folder, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then point to My Documents.
Right-click My Documents, and then click Properties.
Click the Target tab.
In the Target box, do one of the following:
Type the path to the folder location that you want, and then click OK. For example, D:\My Stuff.
If the folder does not exist, the Create Message dialog box is displayed. Click Yes to create the folder, and then click OK.
-or-
Click Move, click the folder in which to store your documents, and then click OK twice.
If you need to create a new folder, click Make New Folder. Type a name for the folder, and then click OK twice.
In the Move Documents box, click Yes to move your documents to the new location, or click No to leave your documents in the original location.
Restore the My Documents Folder to Its Default Location

Click Start, and then point to My Documents.
Right-click My Documents, and then click Properties.
Click Restore Default, and then click OK.
