  1. Are you saying that you (or someone else) partitioned the drive as C: and D:? If so, then add another hard disk and:

    - Copy all files from the D: drive (partition) to it;
    - Assign a different drive letter to the D: drive
    - Assign drive letter D: to the new drive and recreate the shares if need be
    - If everything works properly, then delete the partition that you no longer need
    - Extend the C: partition to use the whole drive.

    What server OS are you using? Windows 2003 Server?

    I think you need to resize your partition. Is there a large numbers of free space on drive D? If that you could use some third party software to shrink drive D to release some unallocaed space, then add the space into C drive to increase C drive,
  3. if your drive d has enough free space, u may get some space by decreasing d drive, and add it to C by using server manager tool.

    if not, just do it like what GhislainG say, add another disk for it.
