My Windows 2000 Professional computer has 50 MB of hard disk space on drive C and 500 MB free disk space on drive D. Print jobs are failing because available space on C is inadequate. I want printer to be able to use the space on drive D. What should you do?

You can avoid spooling print jobs by going to Printer's properties, Advanced Tab and select 'PRINT DIRECTLY TO THE PRINTER'.
It would be advisable to clean up your HD since you don't let Windows to "breath".
You can move pagefile.sys to another drive = it should improve your performance and save some space.
