Is the C: drive the one that Windows is installed on? If yes, 13.9GB is very little space and you may want to shrink the D: partition and extend the C: partition down the road.

But for now, I assume that you're talking about downloading files with Internet Explorer - have you tried rightclicking on the download link and selecting "Save As"?

Yes, In a C: is windows.Can you explain how i can 'Give' space(GB's) from D: to C:, is that possible? And for i example i want say: I use Vuze for torrents and i want to download a game and i click "open with Vuze" but when torrent is in Vuze it says "INSUFFICIENT DISK SPACE" ..

What's happened is that your friend has installed Windows to your laptop's recovery partition.

What I would advise you do now is shrink your D drive from the left, and then extend your C drive to take up the result unallocated space.

This tutorial shows you how: https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/93322-partition-wizard-use-bootable-cd-3.html

Shrinking and extending by 100GB should be ample for Windows 7 and your applications.

Your best bet is to download the Partition Wizard ISO and burn it to a blank disc then boot into it to partition your drive.

When you've done that you can exit the program and boot back into Windows.

seavixen got you covered (I really keep being late today LOL), but just wanted to add - you can configure your Vuze client to download to the D: drive by default. Then you should be all set.
