Need assistance on multiple hard drive letters
JKennedy Feb-21-01 03:18 AM
on my home pc, a 6gig hard disk is partitioned into drive c,d,e. I am running very low on disk space and want to combine d,e back into c. This is drowning my pc b/c it is low on disk space on c. How can I delete or re-partition these drives back into one drive=c without losing any data? I hope I explained this well, any help would be great!

You would need to back-up C:, D: and E; to another drive or network and use a program such as Partition Magic (http://www.powerquest.com/) or BootWizard Pro 4.0 (http://www.acronis.com/en/products/bwp40/index.html) to expand C:. Note that I said backup C: I would use MS Backup, which comes with Windows and may need to be installed (http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/software/windows/winme/backup/index.html) and make two backups of critical data. The beforementioned partition management programs are designed for technically proficient PC users and can go awry. Do it at your own risk. Larry
