This is why we duplicate or backup the entire driver BEFORE we use any partition managers.
YES I read you have the recovery media but some find out the CD/DVD drive has aged and won't boot from that.
With the major warnings out of the way I've used GPARTED (see google) to delete and resize volumes. However what's on D: now would need to be restored to C: after the change.
I have a Sony PCV-RS 430G running Windows XP Home Edition with SP1 and SP2.
C drive is nearly full and warning me to free up space. I have lots of space on the D drive. I don't really want to reformat this pc.
I have an external hard drive that I could set up to move files on the D drive over to, if that's an option. I'd like to keep using this pc. I've removed all the programs I can afford to move and defragged.
C drive: Capacity 13.9 GB - Used:13.8GB Free:128MB
D drive: Capacity 92.8 GB - Used: 47.3GB Free:45.4GB
I have recovery disks I made when the pc was new.
I also used SpeedUpMyPC to try to clean it up. I've disabled it now.
Would you help me to know what the best approach would be? I don't know if removing the partition is the best option or not. Obviously I can not put anything else on the pc at this time.
Thank you all very much.
