    so when i installed win10 to my computer, my primary drive that windows is on decided to split itself in 2 drive paths. so now i have a c and d for one disc. My cdrive fills up super fast and so im wondering if there is a way to unpartion it so it is back to 1 single drive path

    Win10 makes either two or three partitions depending on whether it is installed in gpt or mbr. The extra drive should be just system recovery and not taking up much room. Post a screenshot of disk management. This is what a normal install looks like when installed in gpt mode.
