What operating system?

Also what are on these partitions?

XP Pro, one has XP on and one has Programmes on and the other one has nothing, thats why i want to delete that one and give the C: back more space since when i partitioned it, i only gave it 5Gb(!)

Start > Control Panel > Admin Tools > Computer Management > Disc Mangament (on the left).

Right click the Partition and delete. However this will only make it free space. As far as i know you cannot give back part of the HDD to another partiton. Like you want to do, using XP itself.

You need a third paty program such Partiton Magic to do this.

if i delete the partition then where does the free space go? is it shared between the 2 left?

where can i get Partiton Magic?

order it?!?! ill find it somewhere.....

so what does the programme do?

Free space is there waiting to be used, made into a partiton. It will not get shared.

Just keep this thread at the top someone may have a cheaper way than buying PM.

But i know you can, I'm sure you can, i'll bet a penny, the car, the house...

Even the cup-a-soup...

that you can merge that freespace with C


Now come on someone say you can do this, otherwise, i've lost everything :-(
