Ive been using Matlab for sometime know and all my files were saved in my documents (C Drive) and now this drive is full and i would like to move everything to the D Drive so i thought its as simple as copy and paste but now my files dont run they ask me to revert back to file in the C Drive.

If you had a file open in the editor and you move the file to D: then MATLAB is not going to know that the file is moved, so if you try to edit or save or run the file then MATLAB could have problems. The work-around is to close the file in the editor and re-open it from the D: location.

MATLAB uses the search path to locate files. Now folders/files have been moved from C drive to D drive, but this new path is not on MATLAB search path (path function displays MATLAB search path).
Use Set Pathdialog box to add files/folders to search path or use MATLAB > Current Folder Browser to add files/folders to path.
Refer path and What is the MATLAB search path for more information.
