Extended Partition dead space?

  sharpe 16:10 10 Sep 2005

Hi anyone help,

I'm running XP and have only one h/d. this is divided into C, F and G.

The C drive has an extended partition which appears to be doing nothing.

There is no drive letter on it just brackets with a star.

Do I need an extended partition or can I just merge it with the C drive.

I have artition Magic 8.0 and it wont let me do anything with it. If I click on it none of the tasks will work they are all greyed out.

Any ideas guys

This is just space that contains the logical partions F + G

So are you saying that it is not an actual partition and not wasted space?

yeah your logical partions both reside in the extended partion, is not wasted space
