Hello ad1l8, welcome to Seven Forums!

If you post back a screenshot of your full Disk Management telling us what you would like to enlarge, or get rid of, etc. we will give you the steps to do it using Disk Mgmt and Partition Wizard.

Use Snipping Tool in Start Menu, attach file using Paper Clip in Reply Box.

You should have at least a 100gb Win7 partition unless you are placing your User folders on a separate data partition, which we can also help you do: User Folders - Change Default Location
