Windows 7: Disk management

The rather fast images shown before simply show the alternate of simply shrinking the D down in order to expand C once the D partition is pushed back to the rear of the drive. The black marker look made in paint with the brush represents the allocated space. That would be the situation for wanting a second storage partition seen by merging C into the unallocated space left behind.

With D cleared off and hopefully all files and data backed hopefully externally the task now is simply removing D entirely and hopefully seeing working results once C is expanded out to the rear of the drive since there's always a chance the partition table could end up being corrupted somehow forcing the new for a total restoration on a new C primary. This is why we have to emphasize always backing things up first.

One example was seen lately on an older XP machine where the 7 RC had expired and was removed to see C re-expanded into the second partition's former drive space. Unfortunately the disk read error appeared and parttiion recovery efforts had to be made. Backup first is the key word for sure!
