If nothing else, if your C and D partitions are on the same physical drive you could always reallocate the space (shrink your D and enlarge your C).  There are a number of free programs to do that for you; I have always had excellent results with Paragon software ( is their free partition manager page).

The My Documents folder is part of Windows 7's new Documents Library.  A library combines multiple folders that contain similar types of files.
To move your documents to the D drive:
1. Create a new documents folder on the D drive.
 2. Right-click the new folder and click Include in Library > Documents .
 3. Click Start > Documents .
 4. Double-click My Documents to show its contents.
 5. Drag and drop the files to the new folder.
 6. Press F5 to refresh the view.
 7. Under Documents Library , click locations .
 8. Right-click the new folder and click Set as default save location .
 9. [Optional] Click My Documents and click Remove .

Maybe I'm missing something, but with the current version of SCC (3.03.01) I had no trouble doing a Grab Current Screen while WMP was in full screen mode (F11) playing the sample wildlife video.  Win 7 x64, with an Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT, 295.73 driver.  (That's full screen on one 1920x1080 monitor, not spanning both of them.)

Actually my task when I came into work this morning was to find a way to track pool growth, since my boxes were cooperative enough to spit out a semi-incriminating event before they locked up.  My remembrance of perfmon was that it was too convoluted to get set up, so I was about to write a quick script when I came across this.

I should point out that the -m parameter tracks by process, you could also use a -p parameter to track by tag but that's more work to track down if you get a hit  ;)

Anyway, if you have a leaky app running on your boxes, hopefully this will show it up.  But if it's something innocuous that suddenly goes wild, you might not catch it.

PS- You can also just run a few snapshots by hand too, it doesn't need to be on a schedule...
