The EISA partition shouldn't be all that big, so formatting it may not give you enough space anyway.
The backup disks should enable you to restore the computer - but do you know that the disks are good? I've had experiences where I've made backups and they couldn't be restored. The only sure way to know this is to actually do a restore with them.
Also, disks can deteriorate over time - so in the future they may not be usable. In that case you'll have to contact Acer for a replacement set (I don't know how much they cost).
Finally, I don't know the exact contents of the EISA partition - so deleting it could cause the system not to boot to Windows. Then you'll have to repair it using the restore disks anyway.
As I recall, the D: partition is for storing data. As such, your easiest option would be to transfer the stuff off of the D: drive onto an external drive. That way you can use the free space in the D: drive (and won't have to take the chance of borking the boot up process).
