Make sure nothing is installed on that 15GB partition and on the 117GB partition. I like a recovery program to restore computer.

If not go a head and right click on the two partitions and hit delete volume. You should be left with something like 132GB worth of unallocated space.

Then right click on the C partition and hit extend volume, click Next, next again and then finish. This should extend the C partition to that empty unallocated space.

It that doesn't work then you need a partition program like Paragon to do it for you.

Hello BTNH108464, welcome to Seven Forums!





Are you trying to right click, delete the D: then trying to merge it, it has to be unallocated space before it can be merged?

As long as there's no data there you want to keep.
