I have two drives on my desktop, A C drive and a D drive. The D drive Is a lot bigger than my C and that is where I usually try and keep most of my files. I can move some things over to the D drive just fine but some things I cant. I have about 1 gig of space left on the c drive. I dont understand why this computer was designed like this. i used c cleaner already and it helped some but not a lot. what to do?

You can do one of three things. You can compress your entire drive which will give you some more room. You can remove programs that you do not use or you can replace your drive with a bigger one. Four actually....you can run disk clean up and get back a portion of your drive as well.
Easy, maybe your computer does not have the needed RAM (read and write memory). Your harddrive may not be big enough. Just because a problem loads doesn't mean it will run. Verify the RAM & hard drive space required (you may have 1 Meg Ram but it could need 2 Meg Ram, You may have 20Gig Memory Hard-drive but it could use 25G hard drive space. Some newest programs need higher/bigger Ram or hard drives.
to add memory, for increased virtual memory it is to delete msic data from the hard drive, if it is your hard drive low on space you should purchase another hard drive and make the new hard drive as the slave to store more, on it. if not have a bigger hard drive installed, obtain a USB external hard drive. to add increased more memory you have to open the pc, add another sdram/dimm/ddr memory card.
Hello your D: drive is most likely a Windows Operating system backup drive only to use when your computer crashes so you do not use Drive D: for anything on your system Drive C: however is your main system drive where all of your programs are kept you should have a 320GB hard drive if im not mistaken but the drive is Portioned which means basicly windows takes a piece of the 320 GB drive and sets it up as another Drive which is your Drive D and all the rest is on your Drive C so if you check the settings on your drive C you should have plenty of space available this is why you have a lot of space left im assuming if your C drive isn't full
Does the D: drive have an Operating System on it?
Can you compress the info on your C: Drive? That would in effect give you more room. Odds are that your D: Drive only has the "Restore" files on it and is best not messed with.
You can add another hard drive, but it won't double your C drive; it will just show up as another hard drive.
However, using a program like Acronis, you can hook up the 2nd hard drive, make an exact image of your c drive on the new drive, then connect the new drive in the old drive's place and there you have added more space on your c drive as it will automatically become the c drive.
Are you surfing the internet a lot? You may be getting a lot of temporary files. Here is something to try. In internet explorer go to tools / internet options / delete cookies, delete files (all offline contect) and clear history. This should help some. You are always going to go down in space. Windows updates automatically on a regular basis. This will cause a decrease in available hard drive space.
