who ever set up the hdd partitioned in two
leaving C: drive way too small
but, when I go to delete drive D: I don't get the option to delete
drive D: is empty

Suggestions on how I can delete drive D
and merge C: with it?


Thank you!

Try moving the paging file to C: first :)

move it being "the paging file"?

if, yes, once I move the paging file to F &
delete D and merge it with C:

should I move the paging file back to C:

should I move the paging file back to C:

You can if you like, but you don't have to, and in fact your system may run faster with it on the other drive - then Windows can load files from C: while simultaneously reading\writing to the pagefile on the other drive.
