No there isnt you could use a partition software to merge the two partitions but if this went wrong during the process you would lose everything. I would recommend you get a professional or someone you trust to do this for you

Hi, there is no need to make d drive as the main drive. You can move the free space of D drive to your C drive with AOMEI Partition Assitant.

Acer brand laptop computers are designed to be small, portable units that are great for logging onto the Internet and checking email on the go.
As your Acer laptop ages, you may start to notice that it runs a little more sluggish than it used to. As Acer brand laptops run on the Windows operating system, luckily there are a few built-in tools that you can use to boost performance and generally speed up your machine without spending any additional money.

Use the "Disk Cleanup" tool. This tool is built into all Acer laptop computers and is accessible by clicking on "Start," then "Programs," then "Accessories," then "System Tools."
Disk Cleanup will remove any files left behind by programs on your Acer laptop computer that are no longer needed.
This can free up valuable hard drive space and generally give your Acer laptop computer a bit of a performance boost.
Use the "Disk Defragmenter" tool.
As with Disk Cleanup, this tool is built into all Acer laptop computers and is accessible through the same folder in the "Start" menu.
Disk Defragmenter physically rearranges the way bytes of data are stored on your hard drive, making it easier for your operating system to access pertinent information.
As it will take your computer less time to find the information you're requesting, your computer will speed up a great deal.

Get anything you can off of your hard drive. In order to keep the price down, Acer laptop computers tend to come with smaller hard drives than full sized laptops.
As a result, hard drive space can be very precious.
The more data is stored on a hard drive the longer it will take your operating system to sort through everything and find the files you're trying to access.
If you empty any files you don't need onto a flash drive or external hard drive, you can generally improve the speed of your Acer laptop computer a great deal.

Acer 5315 HD C is full HD D empty


Very likely the answer is yes, IF: 1) there is enough space and 2) that D drive is not being used for something else. Check on what is on the D drive. It's usually reserved by the manufacturer and contains OS restore files (used for restoring your system after a crash). Don't delete these, but if there is enough free space, just create a new folder and put your files in there.

Acer 4720z. sluggish performance


The first thing is always make sure that you dont got any trojans, viruses, worms, or spyware on your computer.

www.avast.com Offers a HOME EDITION free Virus scanner,
Download this
Install
Remove your computer from the internet, and do a FULL SYSTEM SCAN

Step 2, would be just cleaning out the files and cookies on your computer though internet explorer.

In Internet explorer click on "TOOLS"
Then "Internet Options"
under "Browsing History, under the general tab click "Delete".


Please rate me and give me feed back, ty for your time and I hope this works for you.
