Question Anyway to combine C and D hardrive??

Hey, so im new to this site but quite experienced in computers. However, I have a laptop with a 100 (really like a 90gb) GB hardrive. However, 45 Gbs are split between the C and D drive so I have a C with 44.9 Gbs and D with 45.2 GBs. The C drive has always been the one I used and I was wondering if there is anyway to combine the two drives so I have a complete 90 GB drive. Of course, I would like to do this safely..lol
So if anyone please let me know

Thanks!

Get PartitionMagic. Merge the partitions using that program, and you'll still keep all your data.

Yes it will.

And ignore that about RAID, that's something for if you have 2 drives, you only have 1.

Just an FYI
Alot of people like to partion their drive into 2.
That way you can have your OS on one partion, and all your files on the second.
That way if you ever need to reinstall your OS, it wont affect your files and data

well I guess that my OS is on my D (but im not sure) drive just the problem is that i only have like 1 Gb or so left on C partly because i have 13 gbs of vista files waiting to be put into use....
so maybe i just have to find a good way to divide the files up or something i guess..idk
