Re: disk full

You can put quite a few things (but not everything) on another partition.
Where to store downloads is a setting in your browser. It's different in IE, Edge, Firefox and Chrome, so I can't tell where you have to change that setting in your browser.

For other things (like programs you install, your My Documents folder, where your mail is stored, how big the system restore area is, where your browser stores its cache and others) it are other settings.

Less than 50 GB for the c:-drive is not much. For most people it's not enough. A short term solution is to run the disc cleanup wizard. But that won't last long. So I would recommend to use a partition tool (there are a few good and free ones) to either combine these 2 partitions into one or to shrink and move the d:-drive and enlarge the c:-drive.

Changing partitions is somewhat risky. If anything goes wrong, you lose all your data. So be sure you have a good backup on 2 different devices (like a USB-stick or an external hard disk or the cloud).

Finally: in the first line you say you have 1 HDD, In the second line you talk about a second hdd. That's strange. if you bring your PC to a repair shop to do everything you can't do yourself, be sure to be more clear and less confusing;

Well I would start with trying to

move music and videos to the second drive. So I would google on the subject moving files to a new location. Program files can be reinstalled on the new drive but they usually aren't as big. Also google clearing history or cache and cookies in internet browsers.

That's a start. Your title should have been Problems with storage space as memory is different. Memory gets cleared when you turn the machine off but hard (storage space doesn't).
