My partitions are as follows:  EISA 4.66GB NFTS      C: 13.97 GB NFTS       D: 37.25 NFTS

My C: partition is full and I would like to extend it or just delete the D: partition and capture the available space to C:?  Will "Disk Managment" allow me to do this?

Hello bgooge =)

>> Will "Disk Managment" allow me to do this?
If u will Disk Management to delete the partition, it will erase all the data present on ur D: drive.... so be carefull while doing this :)

Or u can use a tool liek Ranish Partition Manager if u want to just to take some space out of D: drive to extend C: drive :)

Cuation: Make sure that u have backed up all ur imported Data to a safe place before playing around with ur hard drive partitions !!

Good Luck :)
