OK, you didn't ask a question so what is it you want from us? As long as D: isn't the Recovery partition, create a couple of folders & start storing your files there. It's pretty basic stuff, do you need an explanation of how to do it?

I need an explanation on how to do it. I'm pretty sure I know how I'm just not familiar with how the inside of the D: drive looks compared to my C: drive and I would like to not mess something up.

So, How would I go about storing my libraries in my D: drive instead of my C: drive?

Please see the MS Support Engineer's response or this tutorial for a more complete relocation of your libraries.

Please be advised that you will do the above at your own risk. First create a refresh point before you do anything else. To create a refresh point, make a folder called backup at another drive, say D:\backup. Then open a command prompt with admin rights and give the command

recimg /createimage D:\backup

This command will create a CustomRefresh point and register it as the official refresh point.

If anything goes wrong, you can refresh your PC to the state before you have messed it up.

Before doing anything, you need to determine what the D partition is. If it's the Recovery partition, do NOT use it for storage! What is the size of your hard drive? How many partitions are there & what are the sizes of these partitions?
