Since, it appears you've re-installed windows, etc., just do it again. Be sure to get what you want. For the price of PM, you can get a new HD use its s/w to prepare and install the OS, etc., for roughly the same cost. If you don't do that and want to start over again, use one of these free pgms., DBAN or Killdisk(google for source) and wipe out entire HD. Once done, insert XP OS install CD and re-install. Of course, observe the options when presented.
My nephew has my old computer with Windows XP, I had to reinstall windows. The computer has one hard drive disc (C:) By mistake I created a partition (D:)
(C:)has 10.81 GB, and New Volume (D:)has 26.46 GB. Everything is squeezed onto (C:) and (D:) is completely empty.
Using Disc Management I have deleted (D:) I now want to expand (C:)to use all the space. As this is something I will only be doing once, I did not want to purchase specialist software. I see that Partition Magic has good reviews, but wondered if there is a free program to do this one off (hopefully)job.
Am using FAT32 file system.
Would appreciate any advice,
