Hi! My mum had a guy reformatted my computer while I was at school. It's a Windows XP. I noticed that he partitioned my hard drive into a C and D drive. Is there a program that can merge them without losing any files? I don't want to call the guy to reformat my computer AGAIN. :)

I've done some googling and the main program names I've been seeing are Partition Magic and Acronis Disk Director. Another topic about merging partitions has mentioned the program GParted. All of these programs seem to have some complaints about them. Sooo... Which one is the best? (As in, which one has the least chance of something going terribly wrong and screwing up my computer?)

People also said things like "Partition Magic won't work on servers" or something like that. So my "partition" might not be a REAL split... of the hard...drive? WHAT?? I don't know this mumbo jumbo! :) Are their certain specifications that I need to check before running any programs to merge the two drives? Right now I'm too scared to try anything, though I did make a restore point in system restore....

I'm such a noob. :c

Thanks for any help in advance!

Hello, I no longer need the answer for this because I just reformatted my windows again. But if anyone does have anything to add, go ahead. =)
