Windows 7: Factory Image D: warning, out of space

Factory Image D: warning, out of space

I'm constantly receiving a pop-up warning message in the lower right corner of my screen warning me that Factory Image D: is almost out of space. Is there a way to transfer some space from partition C: to the D: partition without jeopardizing my C: drive? This problem appeared when I had to replace my original hard drive with a replacement. The technician "cloned" my old drive onto the replacement hard drive.

Windows 7 gives me an option to obtain more space by deleting all but the latest Restore Point data, but I'm reluctant to lose all my older Restore Points.
I have 40 kB free of 9.13 GB on D:
I have 382 GB free of 456 GB on C:
I was hoping there would be a convenient way of transferring some of the surplus C: space to the D: partition.

I have used Acronis Disk Director to do as you are wanting to do, however, be forewarned, often there is nothing simple or quick about this process of moving byte-space from adjacent partition 1 to adjacent partition 2. I hope you have made a full image backup of each partition before undertaking this byte-space moving operation.
