Disk Management is where you view your partitions, delete, create and format new. I've told you twice how to get there. Let's try another way: Click Start Button, rightclick Computer, Select Manage, then Disk Management.

Maximize window, use Snipping Tool to capture drive map and listings showing all column content.

I do not know why you wan't to use snipping tool for it, I just used printscreen + paint. Here it is.

If Factory Image (D) is the recovery partition imported with HD from another computer and it is no longer needed for source computer, it can be deleted after you post up the screenshot SIW2 requested of the contents of Recovery Folder here:

Greg, first of all thank you for the help. The contents of the ''Recovery'' folder is shown on page 2 together with showing ''boot'' folder. Though I tried making a back up on this computer before but it turned out not to have enough space for it. But it still took up space. Didn't have this problem before I did that. So it is safe to remove it since it's a backup? And just do another afterwards?

Yes, you can make new backups at any time. It's best to save your Win7 backups to external or another HD in case of HD failure. If you must save it on the same HD, create a small Primary partition for that purpose at the end of the HD.

For now, you can delete the useless Recovery Partition in Disk Management, then extend Win7 partition into it's space.

Greg, since we delete it, don't you mean create a new partition since expanding a deleted partition is quite impossible?

Edit: Nevermind, thank you Greg.

You can extend the Win7 partition if you want, or create a New Partition if you prefer that.
