Partitioned Hard drive

  hargranules 09:20 10 Mar 2006

I am working on a pc that only has 2 % space left on c drive but has 48% left in the other partition D.

I was wondering firstly if there was any reason why i should not remove the partition.

Also i was wondering if someone could provide instructions on how to remove partition without losing nay programs or work.

Thanks for your help.

You cannot remove the partition and add it to C in Windows.

You will need to get one of the 'magic' programs.

I presume that D holds a hidden recovery system?

First of all, how big is the disk and how big is each partition?

You may find that D is not really all that large so that the position may not be improved by all that much.

It may be possible to fit a larger disk, either as a second (slave) disk or in place of the existing

How old is the computer and what o?s are you using?

Do you have a windows disk?

Have you cleared all the dross off C ?

Instead of all the faffing about all you need to do is move programmes over to D. You can put documents/ music/ photos and even run programmes from D with no loss of speed.

Thanks for the advice will move programs to d as suggested.

as an afterthought....I would suggest that you buy an external HD to backup any important files that you may have. If you get a catastrophic HD failure you will be up the proverbial creek.
