Windows 7: Help PLEASE!! New Win 7 Laptop Partition issue

Help PLEASE!! New Win 7 Laptop Partition issue

This is my first of probably many posts.

I have just purchased a new Win 7 64 bit laptop. During set up it asked for drive partition sizing,

I selected 49gb on c:drive with the remaining 400gb on the d:drive with the final 51gb allocated to system and recovery I think they were called.

After transferring my itunes stuff over from my old pc I am alarmed to see my c:drive glowing red and almost full with seemingly no way to move files or defaults to the d:drive.

Have I monumentally screwed up my set up here as there doesn't seem to be a way back from what I have read on forums?

All help gratefully received on what to do from here,
