For some reason my Windows 7 laptop has 115 GB on the C drive while the D drive which is barely used has 172 GB. As a result, I have 30 GB left on C and the D has barely been touched.
I tried to remove the partition, both through windows and EaseUs Partition Master Home edition and neither worked. For some reason, I can only take out space from C but I cannot add more than 115 GB.
I don't think I have more than one hard drive since I didn't add anything to the computer, everything is the way I bought it.

If you want to make it all one partition.
1) back up everting on D drive that you want to keep.
2) Go to disk manager
.. Rt Click on My Computer, select manage.
.. On left pane, select Disk management.
3) right click on D drive. and select delete volume.
after you have deleted D drive volume.
4) Rt click on C drive and select expand, expand to full size of drive.

Thanks! It worked.
After removing space from D, I could not move the unallocated space to C until I backed up D and deleted it. Afterwords, I Remade D with about 5 GB memory (Probably still a bit much, but no big deal), restored it and moved the rest to C.
