Would like to reclaimdisk space from a partition

  Shortstop 11:50 20 Jul 2009

Hi everyone,

To cut a long story short, I installed Ubuntu 9.0 over the weekend but didn't like it.

Following help from the online forums, I have removed the screen asking which OS to use by using the Recovery option on the Windows CD and have reinstated the MBR so that my system boots straight into Windows. However, I would like to reclaim the partition that was allocated to Ubunto, but I don't have Partition Magic.

Can anyone recommend a freebie that will do this?

Many thanks,

Easeus Partition Manager click here
This free version is very good . Used it several times and it works,

Although I have not been able to get it absorbed back into the C drive, I have reclaimed the space and a new 'drive' so put my music on there from my D drive.

Many thanks for the recommendation Quiet Life!
