I have a Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) installation. A while after I installed it, I reserved some space for OS X and created a partition for it. I use MacDrive to access the data on the OS X partition from Windows. I no longer have need of the OS X partition and would like to remove the partition, but MacDrive warns me that I will lose ALL my data if I remove the partition.

How can I reclaim that partition without disrupting my Windows installation?

Please clarify - your question title and last sentence ask two different things (without disrupting Windows vs. without disrupting OS X). Though based on the rest of the question I assume you meant without disrupting the Windows partition. – Bob Feb 15 '12 at 13:43
