Windows 7: Delete F and extending C into the space of F Drive

Delete F and extending C into the space of F Drive

I am filling up my C drive but have F drive to its right which is empty so I wish to include the space of F into my C drive.

Present layout:
Delete F and extending C into the space of F Drive-hard-drives-dec-14.jpg

I am ever scared of screwing things up so please excuse checking I will get it right!

I think I can do this using Windows 7 Disk Management by deleting drive F resulting in F becoming unallocated space. Then extending drive C to use all the space left from F.

Is this the tutorial I should be using?

How to Extend a Partition or Volume in Windows 7.

I have Parition Wizard boot-able cd if that would be better......Any words of wisdom humbly welcomed as I do not want to wreck my Christmas!!

You were right, first you'd need to Delete the F: partition Partition or Volume - Delete

Then Extend the C: partition into the newly deleted space. Partition or Volume - Extend

Follow Gav's advice, but use the bootable version of partition Wizard as you cannot resize C: whilst booted into Windows.
