Help with deleting partition

#1

i want to delete a partition on my second HDD
i currently have two partitions on the drive but i dont want the second one…how can i delete only one and not the other?


#2

Get Partition Magic if you don’t want to lose all your data. There are some free partition tools out there, but I don’t have any experience with them. Another alternative is to back up your data on the drive and then reformat.

I couldn’t agree more. :iagree: I find Partition Magic to be the best.

Something tells me this post is going to get beaten like a dead horse…

Partition Magic is now owned by Symantec (bought out Power Quest). I find that 9 out of 10 times no problems. But if you get hit with that one time you will lose everything on the hard drive so backup before you use it.


#6

problem is that i cannot backup cause my C drive has too little space…

i’ll take my chances.

Use Norton Ghost or something like it and backup onto either a CD or DVD. Ghost will backup directly to the removable media. If you do a google search for “Langa List backup utilities” you should get a good idea of how to backup.

Please be specific about what you want to do. Do you want to merge the 2 partitions? If so, you can only do this with a tool like Partition Magic or Acronis.

Do you simply want to re-format that one partition? If so, Windows will do this for you. Go to Disc Management.
