Answers :

\015\012The drive actually can't go over its capasity then it will be full everything will still be there but it will just be full, like a bottle.
\015\012So to free up some space you need to use that external hard drive. If its brand new drive you might not see it in my computer instantly so plug it in and open my computer. Do you see the new drive there? is it turned on and everything?
\015\012If you do see the drive and it works, and you can copy files in and out of the External drive then jump to "Copy files from D to your external drive or delete not needed files"
\015\012Partition the new drive:
\015\012If you don't see it and everything is plugged in correctly and its turned on and you hear the ding dong sound when you turned it on / connected it then the drive needs to be formatted and partitioned.
\015\012To do this, Right click with the right side mouse button on your MY computer Icon and select Manage. Then on the computer management window select Disk management. Now on the right side it will load for a moment and you should get a list of all the drives available.
\015\012You should be seeing something similiar to this
\015\012Don't touch the dvd/cd rom drives and also the C and D drives are not the ones we wan't to modify.
\015\012You should see a new drive below thats the usb external drive, might be uninitialized and in that case you should get a message about initializing the drive, click yes on that. If not then find the drive that says Unallocated. Right click on that unallocated space And select new volume or partition.
\015\012go with the wizard and NTFS etc size as big as possible and when It asks about format, MAKE SURE TO SELECT QUICK FORMAT or you will be sitting there waiting for 1-5 hours as it goes over the whole disk.
\015\012Copy files from D to your external drive or delete not needed files
\015\012Now when you open your my computer you should see the Drive there as a new drive or whatever you named it or a local disc H: for example.
\015\012Go into your D drive on my computer and delete some files and programs you don't need if you have no idea what is what then focus on the things you do know about.
\015\012Copy your files from D drive to the external drive.
\015\012If you need help in doing this we can do a remote support session so that I can see your screen and do it with you. just let me know right now if you want to do that if you are stuck and we can do it now, otherwise it might go to tomorrow or I might not be available. I'm available right now.
