Apparently you have a single 250GB HD, partitioned into a "C" and "D" drive. If so,

1) You can move things to the D drive to free up space (Swap file, installed programs can be uninstalled off C and reinstalled on D)


2) You can use software like this to re-size the partitions:

Trial version should work for you.

We did that recently with an aging 875 chipset:

Download and install the Partition Wizard freeware:

Move the starting point of the D: partition by the
same amount by which you want to enlarge C: .

After that task is finished, then you can enlarge C:
by that very same amount.

In our example, our C: started out at 10GB
but it eventually filled up with Windows Updates etc.

The rest of our 300GB HDD had D: and E: partitions.

I moved the starting point of D: by 10GB, thus
shrinking it by that amount.

That took quite a while, because D: had a lot of drive images,
but it finished perfectly.

Then, it was a cinch to enlarge C: from 10GB to 20GB.

I hope this helps.
