PW or Disk Management (as stated by Yowan) will do this. However, I would definitely create a system image to an external drive (or a network drive, if supported) before attempting. You shouldn't have any problems, but it's not guaranteed that your current data will be safe.
Many recommend the free version of Macrium Reflect
. If something goes wrong and your data is lost, you merely restore the image to the system drive.
