How have you filled the drive?

If with video / music / text documents, etc you can move them to the second drive (d) and delete from the C drive.

It's also worth running CCleaner click here to remove any built up residue of browsing etc.

A further option would be to change the location of "My documents" to the D drive; when doing so you will have the option to move the files.
