I some how made a mistake thinking I was moving programs and items from the main C drive to a external drive and then found out later I had some how created an other partition on my main hard drive. So that now my C drive is 49Gb full with about 11Gb free while the new partition Z is Approx 4Gb full with 72Gb free.
How can I take that partition out so that I will have approx 54Gb full and 83Gb free.

Removing a partition can be risky, what I would suggest would be to move all of the data from the partition that you created to the original partition and then use an application like Gparted to resize the partitions.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
