You can do it however you wish...either delete both and format the unallocated space as one drive, or format each of the drives and leave them as separate partitions. I would recommend that both be formatted, though.

Alright, I'll take care of this for a short while more tonight, finish up tomorrow night, then report back to this thread once I'm ready for more advice.
You have no clue how much your help has meant to me. I've ended up not losing as many files as I thought I would. It turns out that since I didn't know that my old drive where Windows was installed was split up, I thought half of it was on the drive that I had to wipe today to do the new Windows install, so I barely lost anything I was worried about at all.
Once this is all over I'll be sure to make a donation of some sort the best that I can, you sure do deserve it.
I'll try not to take up too much more of your time, I should be totally fine in just another couple of days, lol.

Again, I can't do anything until I get home tonight, but I may as well go ahead and ask any questions I have throughout the day.

The only thing I can't find is my old Yahoo IM chat logs. Where would those be saved? Other than that, I'm ready to proceed.
I've gone to Computer Management, and clicked on Disk Management, and it's taking forever to load. It's been a long, long time too.

As messed up as your machine was, it doesn't surprise me that it's taking a while for Computer Management to mount the drive.

Right click on each one and chose "Delete Volume".
Posted 02 April 2009 - 08:27 PM
Now Where is says Volume, it just has C.
At the bottom is has Disk 0, the main C drive.
Under that is Disk 1, to the right it has two parts - 127.99GB Unallocated and then 58.32GB Free Space.
I'm a little lost again, heh.
I just noticed I can right click on the green 58.32GB part on the right and the option to delete partition is there. I've done that, but again, it's taking forever to do anything. I just have the hourglass sitting there.

That 58.32GB of free space just doesn't want to be deleted, lol.

And for what it's worth, this part, E, is the part where the old Windows install was located.
