so what you suggest....... I do this or not...because I felt that my PC is slow as compared to other PC's having same specs and same manufacturer but good in performance than mine due to several partitions......

Another thing I have recovery drive of 14.65GB.......does it contain Window recovery or any other thing ?

The recovery partition is there in case you want to reinstall the system. I suggest not to touch it.

Follow these steps if you ever need to run Dell Windows 7 PC Restore.

But be aware that the factory pre-install is not the best way to run Win7 since it is loaded with bloatware and duplicate utilities that have better versions built into Win7. For this reason to get best performance many tech enthusiasts choose to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Until then I would at least Clean Up Factory Bloatware to improve performance. In addition you can Optimize Windows 7 especially editing visual effects of animation, fading, sliding, dragging intact and selection rectangle.

If performance issues still exist work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 to assure a Clean Boot, check the logs for repeat errors to resolve, utilize System Resources to find solutions to problem, Generate a System Health Report.

Your best bet is to make frequent images and restore a recent image once your system goes on the blink. That is a 20 to 30 minute affair versus a hard day's of work for a reinstall. Here is how.

Thanks for your support.

I want to confirm again; that if I shrink my partition C to make 2 new partitions, will it effect on;
1. files(corrupt problem)
2. performance will improve ?
3. data on C drive will be safe ?

Before you shrink your C partition, make a backup image of it - especially if you use Partition Wizard (I once lost a whole drive full of partitions because of a little mistake I made). Disk Management is safer but may not shrink as much as you need.
