Cleaning the (Recover D) drive


New Member
I have a few question that hopefully someone can help me with.

Resizing or adding more room the the D drive.
Please forgive me for posting what may a common topic. I have read up on tips on creating more space by other previous posters. Someone recommended resizing the shadow something by using command prompt. The suggested size is 2g which i did and it freed up about 500mb. He stated that the systems makes backups of itself in the shadow thing and i can increase size by modifying that.

I need about 2gigs free to download what i need to and currently only have 800mb free. For some reason my system is setup to auto download most things into the D drive which i get around by renaming the download path. Need some help with that if you can suggest on setting up my system to auto download anywhere in the C drive. This is my main problem. World of Warcraft, my favorite game, has just released this huge 1.2gig patch. And when i try to download it says to free up the space. This is why I'm here.

Someone else suggested moving anything that i created from the D drive over to the C drive. Many things that i install into the C drive, for some reason also get installed in shorter parts in the D drive. Even WoW itself has a 300mb folder in
D:\Users\Public\Documents. This folder is not the main folder..but just basic Docu folder.
I have been moving bits and pieces of certain things over, such as printer files and fax files as well as some other games. Messages pop up stating that some of the programs can not work right blah..blah.. Oh well i can fix that later.

When i boot my computer up i have 2 options to log in. This is not a normal log in. The options logs me onto 2 entire different system set ups. This is not a multiple user account on same desktop etc.. This happens prior to that option. I was wondering on how to fix that. I know that question is vague so i will allow you to tell me what i need to describe to you for you to help me.

Here is my specs.
Windows Desktop
Windows Vista Home Basic
Processor Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.80GHz, 2792 Mhz, 1 Core(s), 1 Logical Processor(s)
Version 6.0.6000 Build 6000

Thanks in advance
