Windows 7: unallocated hard drive space

Windows 7
unallocated hard drive space

I have a 5610Z Acer Aspire with Windows 7 (32 bit). I pulled a very boneheaded move getting to upgrade from Vista.

I deleted my D:drive (50 G). I back up to a 500 G external hard drive. Is there a way to add the 59G to C:drive where I could use the space.

If you deleted the second D: partition, why can't you use Disk Management to extend your C: partition over into that space?

Are you planning to do an in place Upgrade of your Vista, which reinstalls your programs, files and settings? If not, boot from the installer, use Custom Advanced tools to create your partitions exactly as you want, then format and install.
