Please...post a screenshot from Disk Management so that we can see all drives/partitions on the system.

 

Start/Run...type diskmgmt.msc and hit Enter.

For purposes of clarity...memory is one thing, while partition/hard drive space...is totally different.

 

Who created that smaller partition...did Dell create it before the system was bought by you?

 

Have you looked at the contents of the D: partition?

 

Me...I would leave it alone.

D: is your boot partition, I would open it and see if there are items that can be moved to C:.  If you can get it under 15% instead oi the 11% shown I think it might fix the issue.  I have never seen a difference in memory between partitions WEIRD!
