Of course a disk management screenshot will help - it has already been asked for.
My advice still stands.

Given the small size of your HDD if you are not planning to upgrade the drive I would restrict the OS partition to 60GB.

BUT you have your pagefile on F: and it is also System active meaning you have boot files on F: which will need to be transferred to C:. So I would have the pagefile on C: and have it as System active, Boot.

Upgrading the HDD to a larger one at some stage is worth considering.

Just seen your last post OP - my advice is over.

Your F drive is marked system, active, and page file.

You need to get those system files moved onto C and you need to mark C as the active drive.

Don't delete F until you do that.
