Allocated disc space XP

  driving man 21:28 06 Jul 2007

My laptop has a large disc which is split into 2 equal parts.
"C" holds downloaded programs and files and has a capacity of 51GB
"D" holds the data of the operating system and has a capacity of 53GB--------most of which is unused'
My Question is how can I move the free space on D to the partition of C.
I cant believe the space sits there to be unused

You use the D space to store files, music, video backups. Just drag folders over and drop them into D.

It is possible to merge the partition, though you would have to pay for decent software and you might damage the space that holds the opereting system. It is always advisable to backup every thing if you try to alter the partition.

If the D partition had been completely unused you could probably have reallocated it to C via Disk management, however as the O/S is installed on it, you may well be better off by using it as per Percy V has advised. You can use the partition even with the O/S on it, many people only have a single partition for everything.
