Hi, My laptop, win xp, has two partitions, how do I merge them, or increase the size of C:
I've tried it in DISKPART and in Partition Manager 11 Free - which says "Wizard did not find partitions that can be redistributed"

Any help on how to do this, please?


diskpart readings are:-

DISKPART> LIST DISK

Disk ### Status Size Free Dyn Gpt
-------- ---------- ------- ------- --- ---
Disk 0 Online 37 GB 0 B






DISKPART> LIST VOLUME

Volume ### Ltr Label Fs Type Size Status Info
---------- --- ----------- ----- ---------- ------- --------- --------
Volume 0 F DVD-ROM 0 B
Volume 1 C BOOT NTFS Partition 18 GB Healthy System
Volume 2 New Volume NTFS Partition 20 GB Healthy





DISKPART> SELECT DISK 0

Disk 0 is now the selected disk.


DISKPART> LIST PARTITION

Partition ### Type Size Offset
------------- ---------------- ------- -------
Partition 1 Primary 18 GB 32 KB
Partition 2 Extended 20 GB 18 GB
Partition 3 Logical 20 GB 18 GB

right click my computer > manage > disk management

within there you should see all the physical drives and all the partitions if any

you can delete/create/merge/split

be careful!
