All of the other partitions are required for system startup, recovery or operation.  DO NOT alter any of them - or you will be greeted with an unbootable system when you next restart.

This is a GPT disc - there is no longer a limit of four primary partitions on a disc -- so you can add a D: partition (or whatever you'd like for your data) without altering the factory layout.
