Right guys and girls, there is a 250gb hdd...

I split it up into partitions

C: Main Drive i set 90gb
D: (logical drive) 40gb

so there is 104.89gb Unallocated

i was wondering if its safe to delete the D: (logical drive) using Disk Management and then creating a new logical drive to make use of all the Unallocated spare diskspace?

Thanks

Yes, it is perfectly safe to delete drive D: (back up anything you need first)

Then using the Disk Management system, create a new drive with maximum disk space allocation

The new larger partition will need formatting before it can be used. Disk Management with prompt you to do this during the steps to create the partition.


** REMEMBER** Anything left on the partition will be deleted when you remove the partition.
