Hello,

For the longest time I couldn't get back on here!
Well, I got XP on my machine now on the C and D drive after alot of retrying different things myself. I had to format drive C but put everything I needed on the D drive. Somewhere along the lines windows wanted to partion C now I have an E. Can I put E back with C? if so HOW?

Not with just the utilities you have in windows

You would need to delete the partition, which you can do in windows (move any data off first), by right clicking MY COMPUTER, choosing MANAGE, and then going to Disk Management , right clicking the partition and choosing DELETE PARTITION

then you need to use a third party program to resize the partition.

The typical program for this is Partition Magic by Symantec

You can also use some third party tools like Ranish Partiiton Manager or QtParted, a linux partition manager like program available on the system rescue cd

Hmmm,...
I guess I should have asked if there was a freeware/shareware program out there. $70.00 is a bit steep for that. Especially for a one time use.

Thank you

system rescue cd is free, unlessyou wish to donate

Once you burn sysrescd, you will boot your pc with it as a small linux distrobution.

The only thing you need to do is select your keyboard, then when you get to the ROOT prompt, start QParted (I cannot recall what you type off the top of my head, but the instructions are right above.

It is a little user unfriendly, but gets the job done

http://qtparted.sourceforge.net/

There is also Ranish, which is even less friendly

I ended up using Acronis Disk Director after alot of research. I recommend this to anyone who has the similar problem. VERY user friendly! It does everything for you right out of the PROGRAM!!!
EXCELLENT. It did EXACTLY what I needed. No dos or command prompt!
Not only partioned disk merge but also unallocated merge and deleted partion recovery!
