They're called netbooks for a reason...they're not meant to be used as a notebook or desktop replacement. If the C: drive is "full up", it's because you keep adding stuff. Either that or you never clear out your internet garbage. To move files, all you need to do is copy/paste or drag/drop from one partition to the other.

I hope you realize that once you start using rive D, your ability to restore Windows when you need to is forever lost.

You should have bought a unit with a standard hard drive instead of the solid state storage you must have. As jam stated you are not using the computer as intended.

Get a USB external drive if you must have more storage.

Heed what XpUser said too. The D drive is your restore partition and you shouldn't write to it.

You should try to delete anything on C that you don't need before storing stuff on D. You could store things on a thumb drive, a 16GB thumb drive costs around $30 at Walmart and it would add double the storage you currently have. Also, what do you mean by you added a 4G card? Is that what drive D is?

I have a netbook that I use as my daily computer, with no issues. It can do anything a laptop would do, just a little slower. Netbooks are able machines that don't need to be viewed as a joke.
