krazy, suggest you leave things as they are 'till you've had the opportunity to check things out to be sure you REALLY want the dl in question.
Once you've determined it to be a 'keeper', MOVE the file (takes it off the drive) rather than COPY it (doesn't remove from drive). Seems to me that'd offer you the most flexibility.
Should you decide you'd rather save them directly, simply edit the destination under the command.
HTH.

If you are saving a file like in word for the first time the 'save as' box pops up. After naming the file near the bottom click on the drop down arrow near the top and select the 'C' drive and preferably a folder to save it in. If you do not have it there you can create a folder and name it 'documents' or 'silly things' or what ever you want.
To shift a number of files between drives to make more room, open a view of both drives and position side-by-side. Right click on a file or folder and select 'Cut' and then right click on an empty spot and click 'Paste'. Start with a smaller item to make some 'shoulder room' or delete something really old you don't need anyway. Or try just dragging between windows and dropping it.

The D drive may be a recovery partition. Leave it be. Usually the recovery on Acers's are hidden. But if the drive is named RECOVERY. I would leave it alone

Just because the OP does not come back in 3 or 4 days to reply, does not mean he will not come back and reply.
