Delete the F partition, it will become unallocated space, but since it isn't next to C, you may have to add it to D....

If you download and use the Partition Wizard Boot CD, and you really do want to combine C and F, you would have to do the following:
1) Boot from the CD
2) Copy off the contents of F to an external drive (if there is not enough room in C to hold the contents of F)
3) Remove the F partition
4) Move the D partition to the right, to the end of the new unallocated space
5) Expand C to fill the new unallocated space
6) Copy the saved Fdrive contents into C
7) Reboot into Windows

Would it be possible to merge these two partitions?
After discovering Speccy, I saw this and now I'm curious. Do I have one hard drive that was shrunk to have two 70 GB partitions or do I have two hard drives? If they are two partitions, can I merge them(formatting XP)?
