You have to be very sure which partition you want to delete if you delete wrong partition you will make Windows OS un-bootable.  You can use MiniTool Partition Wizard Free Edition program to manage partitions.

Your C: "drive" is a partition.  It cannot contain other partitions.

 

Are you referring to a different partition?  You can check by gpomg StartRun...type diskmgmt.msc and hit Enter.  It will show all drives and all partitions which Windows can recognize..

If you right Computer in the pop up menu you will see Manage click on it. When the pane opens click on Disk Management.  You will see a small usually 100mb just above the C drive plus your CD drive.  Those are all valid not to messed with, unless you added a partition there will be no others.

I would not shrink or delete anything...until I was sure just what the OP is trying to do.  As originally stated, the situation does not make sense to me.  To assume what the OP wants...without feedback from the OP...is a mistake, IMO.  It's been almost 3 weeks since initial post without any followup or additional info from OP.
