Windows 7: Remove Vista from Vista / Win7 Dual Boot - Separate Drives

Remove Vista from Vista / Win7 Dual Boot - Separate Drives

I have two drives (C and D) with Vista on one and Win 7 on the other (not sure if they're actual drives or partitions of a single drive, how do I tell?). I am dual booting and never use Vista. Starting to need the disk space and want to delete Vista. Is this difficult in this scenario?

No, shouldn't be difficult.

Post a screen shot of Windows Disk Management so we can see your setup.

Get to disk management by typing those 2 words into the start button search box.
