    I have an ASUS K52jk-a1 laptop. It has a 500gb. hd that came divided into three partitions. The first is the Primary ,the second is the system boot and the last is the Data . There is nothing on the Data partition. I would like to do away with D and put it into C. Right now there is 334 gb. in D and only 116 in C. I don't want to take a chance of loosing what is on C right now. Can it be done and how? Windows 7 is the OS.

    Good; that means you have a backup. :) Especially important when doing any partitioning work.

    Delete the 334 GB partition. Then resize the 116 GB partition to include the (newly) unallocated space. If the unallocated space is immediately to the right of the 116 GB partition even Disk Management should be able to do the task. Else use a partitioning tool; I use the free EASEUS Partition Master.
