    What you will have to do is move some of the stuff from drive C to drive D. This will free up some space and then you can save whatever you need to. You can also try saving things straight into drive D.

    Oh and definitely do not mess around with any windows files. That could mess up your whole pc.

    Only 60GB for the OS drive?

    Is that an SSD or something? Or is it a partition?

    Just change all the file links like my music to a file in the D drive.

    Alternatively, you can search for "computer management" on start and add some allocated space to drive C.

    When you are installing programs.

    Instead of just clicking next for everything and saving in the default directory.

    Choose the custom option and find the D: drive and select it as the destination for the install.

    I've tried to add space on the C drive by shrinking the D drive but when I shrink the D drive it doesn't let me expand the C drive.

    I've also tried to do that but it said it would take like 13 hours. Also I would try to put it in the D drive but at the moment I'm trying to update my iphone and its not letting me do anything and says disk full please free some space or something along those lines. It doesn't give an option to download it to my D drive.

    I guess you could just re-install it. Before you try that, try moving it by going to "uninstall or change a program".
