recover "D" partition on HP computer

Pavilion p6677 c-b PC bundle
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I would like to recover the "D" partition on my "C" HD. This has the old Win 7 OS. It is about 12 GB of space. Need "how-to" as to remove information, possible reformat space and return the space to "C".

 

This is left over from installing Win 10.

 

Please include how to put back in "C" drive.

 

Thanks for any help,

 

Hcube

From a command-line prompt, enter:   FORMAT 😧 /Q

This will delete all the files on 'D:'.

 

Create an empty folder inside your 'My Documents' folder.

 

Use Windows to "mount" the 12GB of the 'D:' drive into that empty folder.

 

Then, when you write files into that folder, they will "transparently" be written into the 'D:' drive.

That was me that posted that article. I did not see how to put the space in "C" drive. Maybe I missed something.

 

I will try again and see if I can put the "new space" into "C'.

 

Thanks for replying.
