A cheaper option is to get an external firewire (now more likely USB) external HD. The two partitions on this (Acer) computer are both full to the brim so I have bought a 1TB Hitatchi HD. It has its own power and just sits there silently, possibly a more practical and cheaper option than trying to fit a new SATA internal drive.

Well I went back to basics and put the drive D back to default clearing everything , having now done one back up it has used about halfof Drive D. Drive C seems the same.
Thanks for all pointers and offers of help, I may still be back
