Damn, I did it again! I have a 5gb partition as "C" drive and a 109gb partition as "F" drive. I need to get back to 50/50 or so. Since XP is in "C", is there anyway to enlarge "C"? I'm getting wierd ideas about re-naming the drives and transfering everything in "C" to "F". Any ideas?

Partition Magic can resize partitions without loosing the data, but I've never used it simply because I haven't had the need.

Hi there

I also recommend you Power Quests Partition Magic

I have used it successfully

Install it on your C drive the interface is self explanatory

or try its help guide its flash based it will tell you exactly how to go about and after you do all the setting on the software and the moment you click on apply it will start its work the system will be rebooted and the partition resizing will be done in dos mode itself
(This is how it happened in Win98 i don't know about XP but i think so that it will happen properly) leave the rest to the software.

It will surely solve your problem

Thanks guys. I came to the same conclusion too. I might as well spring for it because I'm bound to need it again.
