    You should be able to right clik on the d drive and shrink the volume by the size you want to add to the C drive, it will become 'unallocated' space, then you can expand C.

    Thank you.I am doing a backup now just in case something happens to the C drive so when it finishes I will shrink the D drive and expand the C drive. If that fixes it I will mark as solved. Thank you again!

    An alternative to what DMHolt57 suggested is
    How to Change the Default Location of User Folders in Windows 7 and Windows 8l

    The easiest option is OPTION TWO: To Change User Folders Location from within User Profile Folder

    Libraries, as DMHolt57, suggested work too.

    So I used Minitool Partition Wizard and gave my C drive 400gb from my D drive and in the future I will have to start saving photos and files into the D Drive. Thank you all for your help!

    That works too

    Glad you sorted it out.

    When you get the chance, please mark your thread solved.
