I'm not sure if this is the right place for this question so if it isn't please direct me to the correct forum. I have a hard drive with C: and D: partitions and I need to delete the D: partition without ruining the files on the C: partition. Do I need special software to delete the partition? Where can I get good simple instructions on how to delete the D: partition? The reason I need to delete the D: partion is because my backup software defaults to the D: drive when I make a cloned image of the primary drive on my slave drive and as long as there already is a D: drive on the primary drive the backup software can't find the cloned drive which has become drive E: by default. If I can delete the second partition the slave drive would become the D: drive by default and the backup software would be able to find my files and boot up from the cloned drive should the primary drive crash. Thanks for any help.
