Delete/Move some data to other drive,so you'll increase the free space of that drive.

I deleted all the Temp files and the recycle bin and didn't even make a dent. I'm pretty sure it sthe drive where all the backup and restore data goes automaticly

Is D:\ a factory partition or a partiton you made? We need more details to help. Also, posting a screenshot of Disk Management would be helpful, along with details of what data is on the drive (folders, etc.).

If you don't know what Disk Management is or how to post a screenshot, post back for instructions.

Dug a little futher and found the prob. An old restore point that was 10 GB. I deleted it. Problem solved.
The drive is a factory set drive. Its rather small for what its intended for, only 15 GB for recovery restore points. Is there any way to increase the size of the drive?

Just to be easyer ...
Create a screenshot
Screenshot with Paint
Upload it

And Disk Managment (Just follow steps from 1 to 4)
Partition or Volume - Extend

Edit:
Glad that the problem is solved.
