Your Disk C is smaller than D. That is correct, but why is that a problem?

Looks as if you have selected all the files you can see in disc D, and they appear to be a few megabytes.

However, there may be a number of hidden files in the drive which can only be seen if you have configured your system to show those hidden files :P.

Try searching for how to show hidden files if that could be the problem. Should be quite easy..

Go defragment your disk with disk defragmenter, I think it will become normal.
it would require a fair amount of time.
Simpler way: backup your data on disk D and format it.

what's problem with "disk C size is smaller than disk D size" ?. You can resize your partition if you want anytime.
