Move Data folders from D: to C:
How to:
From the D: drive
Select the folder, then Right click - select cut
navigate to the C: drive
Select folder, right click - select paste.
When completed, empty the recycle bin, just in case something is in there.

Don't move. Copy the files/directories to your "C:" drive, then delete them from "D:". If a file is in the process of being moved, and somehow it "craps-out" during the move, it may be irrecoverable.

D drive is usually a hidden partition with a back-up installation on it. What exactly are you trying to do?

As per reply #3, if your system came preinstalled with Windows 7 then your D drive is MOST PROBABLY your recovery partition. If this is the case then DO NOT touch this partition unless you purchase or make a recovery disk set as well as a Windows 7 repair disk, and you may consider making a Windows 7 password recovery disk. After you have the recovery disk set then you can delete the entire partition and create a new one using that space.

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