It could be because of system reservation for page memory and system restore information. You can use CCleaner to clean up to get more free space.

Hey, You got to free space on your hard drive. The virtual memory resides on your hard drive. but if the hard drive is getting full, this will reduce the virtual memory. So make home for virtual memory by free space on your hard drive.

It sounds like you have been storing files on the Recovery partition (D:) instead of your C: drive. You should not do that. The Recovery partition should just that. If you need more space consider a USB external hard drive.
