Can you de-partition a hard drive. I have a SiS dual hard drive but don't see the sense in having it partitioned as there is nothing running on the other partition.
Any clues??

the partitions, Format wipe clean HDD then install Windows from scratch.

BACK UP if you were to proceed.

Kiddology,

You need a program lik epartition magic to do this, if you want to kepp the data on your partitions intact.

you say you don't have anything running on the other partion but one use for a second partition is to keep all your files and folders such as photos, letters, music etc, so that should you need to do a reformat to reinstall an op system you don't lose your files. It would only be necessary to format the partition with the op system on.

If you really want to "un-partition" go to click here and download the partition manager. This will allow you to do what you want without losing any data.
