  • What you need to do is delete the volume with Windows 7 on it then extend the volume with Windows 10 to reclaim the space. Oct 24, 2015 at 15:09

You'll need to remove Windows 7's boot entry, and its system files

Removing boot entry:

  1. Win key + R
  2. msconfig, hit enter
  3. Boot tab
  4. Select Windows 7, delete

Then deleting the Windows directory in your F: drive should get back the space Windows 7 was taking up without reformatting


You could follow my instructions to solve your issue:

  1. Right-click on "My Computer" and choose "Properties"
  2. From the left menu, choose "Advanced System Settings"
  3. From the Windows "System Properties," choose "Settings" default operating
  4. In "System," choose your Windows 10 as default boot and un-check "Time" to display list of operating systems
