Partitioned hard drive

by rubeckf / March 3, 2005 8:51 PM PST

When I installed Windows XP I partitioned my hard drive in half. Now I'm not using the D drive at all and my C drive is about half full. Is there a way to re-partition it? Or how should I use the D drive? I'm really not familiar with how to use the other partition.

What was the plan?

Maybe you should use Partition Magic to merge the two back?

Is partition magic the one that is made by Norton? I originally thought I would store my photos there. However, I'm not sure how to do that. I'm not a newbie, but never had a partitioned drive before.

From My Computer open the D drive create a new folder and name it. Then go to the C drive open the folder with you photos in it and move them to the folder on the D drive. John
