How come I cannot de-partition my computer? 

by on September 11, 2011

Q: I am trying to de-partition my computer, and for some strange reason it will not work properly. After countless forums, I still cannot figure it out. I have an Asus laptop which came partitioned into a C: drive, and an D: drive. The C: drive filled up quickly, but the D: drive was empty. My drive currently consists of, 19.53 GB blank partition, Primary
116.44 GB OS (C:) System drive, Primary
30.27 GB DATA (D:) Data, Extended partition, logical
299.51 GB Extended partition, free space.

I would like to remove DATA and Free space and place the extra room on OS

Merging Two Or More Partitions Together 

by on February 12, 2008

Q: I have a 120 GB HD that has been partitioned into three 40 GB HD’s C,D,E. I just reinstalled windows XP onto the computer and I deleted the D and E assuming they would become part of the original C drive regaining a 120 GB HD, after I installed the OS, I now only have 1 40 GB HD, I installed Acronis Disk Director and it recognized the D and E drives now labled I (due to a second HD that has been partitioned as well). My question is if I re-install XP again and delete the C drive as well as the I drive will it combine them as it installs the OS onto the C drive?

A: Hello. You should be able to use Acronis Disk Director to combine the C and the I drive. My understanding is that you now have two drives containing the total disk space that your machine has. I downloaded the software and installed it and did a test. I was able to create a partition, then merge the two back together for the C drive using the following directions.

  1. I selected the Automatic mode and clicked Ok.
  2. I could now see the C drive and the Q drive.
  3. Select Increase free space.
  4. Highlight your primary drive, the C: drive.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Select the secondary drive that you want to take the memory from, for you it will be your I: drive.
  7. Click Next.
  8. Move the slider to the maximum size of the I: drive.
  9. Click Next.
  10. Reboot.

Once done you should see that the drives have been merged.
