Partition.


I would reinstall your operating system. Dont bother trying to fix it. It will turn into a nightmare.

Can you post a screenshot of your diskmanager? Go to Start>Run and type "diskmgmt.msc"

Also, on wich partition is Windows installed?

The screen shot of my diskmgmt.msc is on my computer but I can't get it online to then post here so i'll attach it to a new post titled - diskmgmt.msc

Currently everything I have loaded and running is on the D: drive which explains why I am running out of disk space.

I think windows is installed to some capacity on both particians. What I want to do is get rid of the C: drive entirely and free up that space for my current OS and programs..

can this be done without losing what I do have on the D: drive..

Thanks for your help!

you will mess up the master boot record and your computer won't boot. if you have tools to restore it, you can try it
