Is there a way to tell BOINC which Windows drive letter (C:, D:, etc) to use? It says it's out of space, and I suppose that's the same drive it's installed on (C:), but I'd like it to use another drive (Z:) for its data.

That's done during the install process, one of the screens asks if the default file locations are okay, just change it there. An easier way might be to free up some space from your C: drive, like your documents. Lots of times I put them on a different drive, or my downloads that I want to keep, my music, etc, etc.
