If you have windows installed on drive C, let it alone. Go into Disk Management and create a new partition or partitions for you other data. Keep Win 7 on the C drive and install you programs on another partition. Maybe even create a third partition for storing pictures / movies and music. The choice is yours.

Understand that no matter what drive partition you install Windows systems on it will designate this drive as 'C' drive when you are in that operating system. This can be physically the second or third partition or even on the fifth hard drive that you install, it will always be C drive to Windows. Always. If you have more than one install of Windows on the same physical computer and even of it is on the same hard drive, each installation of Windows will consider the partition you install it on as C drive when you are in that installation. Every other drive, including drives that have other windows installed on them will get other drive designations. For this reason, get used to adding names to your partitions ('Drives') in Windows so you can keep multiple partitions straight in your mind. Use the partition's size and the physical location indicated in Disk Manager as an indication of which drive is which when you are naming them. For this reason, always use differing partition sizes (say 100GB for system drive and 120GB for Programs, etc.) If you do multiple boots, you will need to do this with each installation separately since one will not be able to 'see' the names (labels) you used on the other installation.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

We have no idea of the size of your HDD or how it's partitioned. If you have "Low Space In C Drive" it's because of the way YOU are using it, not because of the way WIndows is using it.
