Removing Partitions from Windows 2000 PC

I recently purchased a second hand computer from a jumble sale.
It is a pentium MMX cpu @233
64mb of Ram
HDD = 3.26Gb with 2gb on C drive and 1.26gb on e:
All on Windows 2000 5.0 sp 1

As the C drive is down to just 220mb free space, and that there is nothing on e:, I thought that I could remove the partition and move the free space onto the c drive.

How can I do this?

I have already removed the partition via MMC, but can't find a way in increasing the c drive. Any Clues?

I have done as much clean up as possible. There are no tmp files, cookies etc and the recycle bin is empty.

Note, as I bought this at a jumble sale, I do not have any disks

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Partition resizing is not a feature of Windows 2000.

That's a trick for PARTITION MAGIC.

Since it's a new machine, I would wipe it out and start over.

Wipe out is not an option.

Thanks Bob for your reply, but unfortunately, Wipe out is not an option at present, as I do not have any disks for this machine.

I know it is not a good position to be in.

Sorry. I have to lock this thread.

There is no help for casual piracy of Windows.
