Since upgrading to Vista I now have 2 partitions. The C partition is Vista but what's the other one? It's only about 5Gb and I have no idea what's in it.

Sorry to be a thicko but then, all the easier to help me!

The new partition is your old hidden restore partition which you would not have been seeing before the upgrade.

Hi, sorry for the delay in replying to your response, tufti;

For all users out there who've had similar experience of hidden restore partition appearing after Vista install, do you know if it is safe to remove this partition and expand my C:\ drive or should I keep the D:\ (Restore) partition?

i removed my restore partition and put space back on c drive with no problems if i want to go back to xp anytime i will do a clean install

Thanks mobile, I think I'll do the same then as I have no intention of reinstalling XP.

Problem solved! Now I have a query with Zoo Tycoon instead thouh, lol. Guess I'll have to start another thread ....
