I just got a computer, it is celeron 466MHZ, 64MB ram, and it has a 6.4GB hard drive. It works like a charm, but I just recently encountered a problem. The guy who set it up partitioned the hard drive into 1GB C, 2.5GB D, and 2.5GB E. IF he had did them all 2GB it would of saved me a lot of time, but he made the C drive only 1 GB, and no matter what I install on the comp., even if I choose a different drive, it still requires some space on C. I'm completely out of space on C as of now.

So what I want to do is to unpartition the drives, to make them all one again. I have no idea how this can be accomplished without formating the hard drive, and I can't afford to lose the information on the hard drive. So can someone please tell me how this can be done? PLEASE!!!! I'm desperate!!!!

Well, with multiple partitions you are gaining more space because you use smaller clusters, but I imagine at 6.4 GB it isn't making terrible of a difference. To partition a formatted drive you need Partition Magic. Current version I think is PM7... runs at about $35 methinks... or maybe it's 50, I'm not sure.

thanks for the help. I went online and saw Partition Magic 7.0 selling for $40 bucks, but PM4.0 is only $10, is there any difference between the two? would my computer be able to use either one?

For a 6.4 GB HD... PM4 should work. The biggest differences between each version is the size disk they support... although, PM8 which just came out says it only supports I think upto 80GB and people have used it ok with 100 and 120. Check the specs on PM3 if you can. If PM3 is still available you might even be able to use that one, which is probably only a few $$.
