Merging partitions

  whynotsusan 12:37 25 Apr 2003

I am running Windows XP and I partitioned my 80 Gb hard drive into 20 Gig and 60 Gig using the XP disk management facilities. I now want to undo the partitioning and merge the two partitions into one without having to reformat and reload everything (everything is on the 20 Gig partition, the other is empty). There is a command for 'delete partition' so I could delete the 60 Gig but how do I then add the 60 Gig space to the other partition, anybody know?

You need a partitioning utility such as PartitionMagic to delete the unwanted partition and resize your system partition to fill the available space.

It does Win2000 and NT but I'm not sure about XP - probably OK though. Give it a try.

Or there is a demo of V8 on last months coverdisk.
