Linking hard drives

Is there anything I can do to link the three (don't ask!!) hard disks in my system ? I have a C drive of 20Gb which is the main user and is down to about 850Mb of free space - Oh so slow!- and also D and E drives with 5 and 10 Gb respectively. They are almost empty but the free space is not recognised or used except when I deliberately store stuff there.

If you have XP pro (not sure with home) or 2K pro you can convert them to dynamic disks. Once this is done using Disk manager (right click my computer and select manage)you can create a spanned volume. A spanned volume will fill one disk and move onto the other, if you have a spanned volume of 3 disks (32 is the max)my computer will display c: being the equation of all. If you loose one disk due to a failure you all data will be lost.

you cant do it then.. if you dont want to reload onto a larger disk you can get Norton Ghost. This will clone your current disk and expand the partition at the same time.
