    As can be seen from the info I am using a Partitioned drive on my PC and the space is getting very small at the moment, my question is can I by myself either delete the partition or enlarge the C-drive making D-drive smaller or should I take my PC to a technical person. Can anybody please advise me on this

    Any surgery on the partitions carries some risk .. Having a backup is recommended.
    A hard drive that small must be fairly old ..
    And if you haven't preformed a fresh install of the OS lately .. The operating system probably needs a fresh install.
    Nothing tunes up a computer or fixes what may ail it better than a fresh install.

    If it were me, I'd be thinking about a newer, bigger Hard Drive and a fresh install of the operating system.
    Then you can partition the newer Hard Drive and experiment with it while you learn, without destroying the old HD.
    Then, I'd give the old Hard Drive a semi-retirement and keep it around in a desk drawer for a backup.
