Toshiba Satellite Pro C650-18D HDD Recovery

Hi, my laptop has a 250GB hard drive which is split Windows (C) 116GB and Data(D) 116GB. The Data contains the Toshiba HDD Recovery Software(7GB).

My C drive is nearly full, is there anyway I can either reduce the size of the D partition or remove it totally.

My operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

Thanks for your help.

Please post back a screenshot of your maximized Disk Management drive map with listings showing all columns, using the Snipping Tool in Start Menu, so we can advise you better.

You can move files from D to C then delete D in Disk Management then Extend C into the space, but the benefit of having a separate data partition is it keeps your Windows Backup Image smaller without all of the storage included on it. Having a Windows 7 backup image and data files stored externally is the safest method and modern way to reinstall Windows 7 if it ever becomes irreparable or the HD fails. Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

To delete D and extend C:
Partition or Volume - Delete
Partition or Volume - Extend

To instead resize D to extend C into the space, Download free Partition Wizard bootable CD, write ISO file to CD using Windows Image Burner, boot CD.

Rightclick on D to Resize, slide left grey border to right to make as much as space as you want to expand C into, click OK.

Now rightclick on C>Resize, slide right grey border to the right to take up the space you made from D, Click OK, Apply all steps.

Hi gregrocker,
