Couple of things.

  • you can't change the installation location after the install or move the files.

Now you have two things.

  • Change The Logs File Location From C Drive To D drive, You Can Do Via Central Admin Under Monitoring.
  • also change the it's log location from c to d using the iis.

But if you want move everything from c to d,then you have to re install sharepoint. But keep in mind 14/15/16 hives folder always on c drive,you can't change them.
