How do I "move" some things out of my SSD to my HD to create space in the SSD

HP Recommended
Pavilion Desktop 595-p0084
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I transferred a lot of applications etc. from my old computer to my new computer, yesterday. Everything went to my "C" drive which is a small (128Gb SSD). I also have a 1Tb HD with nothing on it. I have since been informed by a nice fellow how to reroute new data to the "D" drive (the 1Tb HD). But is therer someway to open up space on the smaller "C" drive (the 128 Gb SSD)? Or should I just Start over and do the transfer again with a "restore" on my new computer. As you can tell I am a 75 yr old retired pharmacist (NOVICE). 

Any Help and or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,

@rtdpharmacist 

I saw your other post, and I don't believe EaseUS will let you transfer the OS stuff to a drive other than where Windows is already installed -- as this would cause major duplication issues and corrupt the OS in the process.

 

The rerouting of data to the HDD will only apply to stuff you do AFTER you make those changes; it can not be done retroactively.

 

As to recovering space on the SSD, here are some things you can do to recover some of the disk space:

Also, the community Win10 Forums has the following suggestions:
