An old tablet has a 300G HDD.  Years ago I partitioned it into C: and D:.  Now I want to get rid of D: and have all of the disk space back into C:.  All instructions I have read say to just right click on D: within Disk Management and select "Delete volume", but it is greyed out.

If you created a recovery disk you should be able to delete the volume. It could be corrupt and/or have recovery information on it.

However, this free tool is a much easier and faster process - http://www.partition-tool.com/personal.htm
