Unpartitioning drives

Is there an easy way to un-partion a drive (XP)?

Control Panel/Admin Tools/Computer management/Disc management/ right click on the drive (partition) you want to delete and choose delete logical drive. YOU WILL lose all data on that drive and it is not recoverable.

You could give Ranish a try. Free download from:

Although I have it on my computer I have never had cause to use it yet.

I think rawprawn's suggestion will leave you with unallocated space where your drive used to be.

If you want to merge all your partitions into one, then pj123's suggestion, or Partition Magic, will do the job for you without loss of data.
