If you want to keep the partition intact, and just want to get rid of the low
space warnings:
Control Panel (Classic view) > Administrative Toots > Computer Management >
highlight Disk Management in the left pane > right
click in the right pane on the D partition and select Change Drive Letter and
Paths > Click the Remove button > click OK

data on the disk will not be damaged.
