Since you have space on D it is wiser to back up your files to another hard drive in case of Hard Drive failure.

Since you didn't create two partitions during install on Disk1, you can now create a New F out of C in Disk Management:

Partition or Volume - Shrink C
Partition or Volume - Create New F

ok we are getting somewhere... it says total size before shrink in MB is 238373.
size of available shrink space in MB is 101440.
enter the amount of space to shrink in MB.101440.
total size after shrink in MB 136933.

i would like THE F drive to be 116 GB just like before. what is this in MB ?

It's only offering you roughly 100gb for the new partition in Disk Mgmt. You can try to run Disk Cleanup and then Defrag to see if it offers more - you'll need 116 x 1024mb = 118,784mb to have a 116gb partition since some space is used for the partition table.
Disk Cleanup - Open and Use
Disk Defragmenter - Open and Use

Otherwise if what it offers isn't enough to settle for, download Partition Wizard CD ISO, rightclick to burn to CD with Windows Image burner, boot disk to to Resize Partition -Partition Wizard Video Help.

You can try the Partition Wizard windows version first but if it doesn't offer you enough space to Resize then it needs to be done from boot disk while Windows 7 is not running.

I just added a step to run Disk Cleanup so I'd do that too, then Defrag again.

Then you'll need to use Partition Wizard boot disk to shrink while Win7 is not running so that System files can be moved.
