I have a asus laptop with a hdd partitioned C & D,The operating system is on the C section. Now if i delete the 'D' section i know i will loose my info thats on that but i will be doing a backup.Will the hdd then will only have 'C' section and the full existing 120gb. Next.The hdd is in FAT32 format if its possible to delete the 'D' section now can I format the 'C' section to 'NTFS' & of course without disturbing the partition on 'C' where the operating software now is installed.If all to this is 'YES'is it gonna be complicated?.

What op system? XP needs 3rd party software, Vista and 7, you can merge partitions in disk management.
To convert to NTFS without losing data
To convert your drives to NTFS: Open a command prompt window by going to 'start\run' and typing 'cmd' To convert a disk to NTFS, type 'convert (drive letter): /fs:ntfs' So for example, if you were going to convert your C: drive, you would type 'Convert c: /fs:ntfs' at the prompt.
First thing First, if you do not have a full Operating System CD, NOT A RECOVERY CD. You should first Create a Image of the Operating System Partition to a External Drive using Acronis True Image. As if it goes all wrong how will you get it back. Then you can do what you want with the drive
