Is everything you want to keep on the small D: partition, if not and all the data you need to save is scattered throughout the Windows 7 C: partition, no you will lose everything.

What exactly is on the D: Back-Up partition?

You can use this tutorial at the link below to shrink the C: partition to create unallocated space, that can then be used to create an Extended partition / Logical drive that you will be able to move the data you need to save to.

If you do anything to the D: partition, you will not be able to recover the PC back to factory specs if you ever need to.

Direct TV and Dish
Does anyone record videos using this Dish service? We've recorded many videos and I really like this feature! I know it costs a bit more, but not as much as buying several DVDs. We actually play the videos many times. I'm not in any way promoting this feature... just asking a question :)
