It would help if you filled out your system specifications.

What anti-virus are you using?

You say C is 193 occupied.

What was it a week ago? A month ago? A year ago?

I assume Win7 is not booting yet since there is no screenshot posted.

In that case work through the steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start

If you have a single 2 TB drive, I'd probably give 100 to 200 GB to C for Windows and applications and the entire remainder to D for all of your data.

The exceptions might be:

1: if you have an unusually large number of applications or games that you want to put on C, in which case you'd make C larger to accommodate them.

2: if you have very little data and don't anticipate having much more. If all you need for your data is say 200 GB, there's not much point in allowing 1.8 TB for data. But in such a case there's not much point in having a 2 TB drive in the first place.

So, I'm guessing you are like most people---your data requires more space than Windows and your applications.

I'm not sure why you have both D and E now. Why is that?

Again: why do you have both D and E now?

Typically, there's no reason to do that, but you might have an unusual situation?? The most efficient way to store data is to simply use a folder structure on a single partition, barring an over-riding exception to the rule.
