You can ditch D. Why do you need a partition?

No, just means it is a partition of a drive and not a physical one. Not sure why it came with that already, but the 200MB and the 15GB are the backup drives for the OS, so don't touch those. Is there anything in the D: drive? If you want to be safe, give that drive a new letter, shrink the C: drive and use the newly unallocated space to create a new D: drive
