How to remove partition in Windows 7?

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Recently, I re-formatted my Windows 7 PC due to some issues. Accidentally I created two partitions that divide my PC into two drives.

I know that creating partitions is advisable in any case that the default drive encountered any major problems, but I don't really need to divide my computer system into two.

I am more into playing games that requires large size of memory so I want to remove the other partition without affecting or leaving any major issues with my computer.

How can I remove a partition in Windows 7?

Kindly please send some help.

The disk management tool that's always been a part of Windows was upgraded in Windows 7 to allow you to do exactly the kind of partition management task that you're talking about.
Right-click "Computer" – either the icon on your desktop, or the item in the Start menu – and click.

To delete a partition, you must be logged on as the administrator. If you have a single partition, you cannot delete it. As well as the system partition, boot partition or the partition that has the virtual memory paging file. And remember that all the files in your partition will be lost if you delete it. So ensure that you created a backup for it. Follow the steps below:

1. Launch Computer Management. To do this, click on Start> Control Panel> System and Security and then Administrative Tools. Open Computer Management. If you will be asked for a password or any confirmation, just enter the two.

2. Under the left pane, click Disk Management on the Storage.
