Ok so on the girlfriends computer they have a 80GB hard drive that seems to have been split 3 times. It;s now set like this:

Boot C: / Backup D: / Emergancy e:


Now Boot C: has 37GB Backup 32Gb and the rest on the emergancy. So is it possible that the D: drive can be merged back in with the C: drive. Purely because everything keeps getting installed onto the C: drive and now there is only 3GB left. It just seems a bit of a strange set up, especially as there is a drive already set up for emergancy.

Thanks

There may be other ways to do this which someone may be able to advise, but I think you will need to get a Partition Management program such as Partition Magic or Acronis.

I've had pretty good luck with the Paragon partition manager 2005 program. It's free right now because they will let you register it so you may buy the newer version if you like it.

Read the help files carefully and you will get the result you want.
