    Why did you set the drives up that way? Unless of course, this is the way it
    was from the factory, and then it would be an error in the configuration,
    because the bulk of the space should have been dedicated to C:. I worked on
    a Sony VAIO that was set up in a similar fashion.

    Your options are these:

    1. Get a partitioning program like Partition Magic, and re-size the C:
    partition to a larger size using free space from the D: drive.


    2. Reinstall WindowsXP, and repartition the drive using the options in
    WindowsXP setup. This will erase the data from your drive, so be warned.


    3. Uninstall some of your programs from the C: drive, and reinstall them,
    making sure to specify the D: drive instead. This will put the bulk of the
    program's files on the D: drive. Keep doing this with other programs until
    you get a satisfactory amount of space freed on C: and make sure any future
    programs are also installed on D:.

    Perhaps also shift his paging(swap file) to D:

    Do you have 2 physical hard disks, or is it just 1 physical
    hard disk split into the 2 logical hard disks?
