I had created a Linux partition and in attempting to delete it which I did I ended up with that volume in a "E" drive. It is empty naturally and I would like to get that volume transferred/expanded into primary NTFS partition. As an aside I am 84 so those things happen.Attached File  drive.PNG   12.52KB   0 downloads

You can do it either inside of Windows but I prefer to use Partition Wizard


Delete the E: Partiton

Resize your C: Partition


No steps are done until Apply is clicked as all steps are virtual which allows you to exit out of Partition Wizard if you make a mistake.


If you have not done so I also recommend you create a System Repair Disk of Window 7. However unlikely deleting and expanding partitions can go wrong so it would be best to backup your personal data and would be better if you also create a complete disk image to an external drive using a program like Macrium Free or Aomei Backupper. Be sure to create the bootable disk or USB flash drive both programs offer.
