I am sure you meant this to be a reply in your post here;
So, I have locked this new discussion to avoid any confusion, and re-posted your words in a reply in your other thread.
just so i understand i can delete both C: and D with XP disk manager ? and then make a new C: then D: with the disk manager ? and will be able to re ajust the size of the C : ? and all this is done prior to reinstalling the OS ? and even if i back up the registry i still will have to re install my programs ?? a restore from my EXT HD will not work ??
thanks in advance
But you can delete both c: and d: and then make a new empty c: and a new empty d: with disk management before you reinstall the OS. Or keep it as one 60 Gb c:-drive, just as you like.
