"2.73 gbson system sav(d)"

That makes me think that the 'D' partition is not empty, but is the 'image' that is used to restore your system when it becomes corrupted. I would strongly suggest that you do not use it to expand your C: drive.

That is unless you still have the option to create recovery CDs from it. Doing that would depend on the PCs manufacturer.

The best advice would probably be to clone the drive to a new larger drive, and replace the current one.

Your system is old so you probably can't use an internal hard drive larger than 120GB. You could just add a second hard drive and leave the existing drive just as it is. Your computer should allow the addition of a second drive. You need an IDE/ATA 3.5" that is 120GB or less.

Another option would be to use a USB external hard drive for additional storage space. That just requires an available USB port. If your computer only supports USB 1.1 (which I suspect) then the external will run very slow but should work.

Do you have a CD/DVD drive that is capable of burning disks? If so you could archive some personal files on CDR or DVDR as your hardware allows.

Because you didn't supply any of the requested specs when posting we can't be any more specific.
