Windows 7: Linking 2 Hard drives

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit.
Linking 2 Hard drives

My hard drive has been split up into 2 (C and D drives). My question is there a way to link
these hard drives into one big main one.
Thanks a Bunch

What is on the D drive? You can go to disk management and delete the D drive and extend the C drive to take the space the D drive was using. But, that would depend on what is on the D drive. By doing that in disk management, you will lose all data that was on the D drive. Back up the data from the d drive first.

Also, if you installed applications onto the D drive, your running Windows instance on C: is going to have registry pointers and the like pointing to the D drive for applications. So, if you backup the data, remove D and then expand C to use entire disk, and then restore data, you may find applications which don't work. If on the other hand, you simply used D for file storage and the like, things will be fine.
