For some reasons you may wish to delete a partition you created earlier in windows OS. But before deleting a disk partition, make sure you have backed up your important files in that hard drive.
1. Right click on my computer icon on your desktop, then click on manage
2. The computer management window pops up. Then click on disk management menu on the left of the window. It shows you the available disk partitions and drives on your system.
NOTE: Make sure you know the drive letter of the disk partition you want to delete to avoid choosing the wrong disk partition.
3. Right click on the partition or virtual drive you wish to delete and click on Delete volume
4. Windows tells you the consequences of deleting the volume and ask you, "Do you want to continue?".Click on Yes . Windows deletes the virtual drive and displays the disk partition with the label, "Unallocated".
5. You have just succeeded in deleting the virtual drive. but then you need to merge this partition with the parent drive or partition, (the initial drive or partition from which you created the deleted virtual drive). To achieve this, Right click on the parent drive and click on extend volume.
This prompts the extend volume wizard.
6. Click on Next. The space or partition you wanted to delete should be selected
Click on Next again, and then click on finish.
You have succeeded in deleting the partition! You should also notice that the size of the parent partition or drive has increased by the size of the deleted partition.
