a computer tech set up 2 drives in Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit when he installed a new HDD, 500 GB

 

But I am noticing that all my downloads are going into the smaller C drive (100 GB) leaving the D drive (397 GB) empty. So I don't see a need for the D. 

 

Can I just go into Disk Management, click on D drive and choose "Delete Volume"  then will the space be added to C drive?

Hi Achaemenid :)

Yes, that's how I would proceed. Once the D: partition has been deleted, you right-click on the C: drive, select Expand and give it all the unused space that you have after deleting the D: partition.

Well...if you have anything on that D: partition, it's best to move it to another location before deleting the partition.

thanks for this answer. 

 

In my system when I right click it says "Extend volume."

 

then the extend volume wizard opens up. 

 

Already done.

So I understand that you managed to delete your partition and extend the C: one then :)

Yes, 

thanks to Aura and Hamluis, and the other guy who deleted his post for helping me with my first partition operation. 

 

This thread is RESOLVED.
