    Merge XP partitions into C drive?

    Hi,

    I have an old XP pc with 160 Gb HD with 4 partitions inc. C. Is there any way (within XP only) I can merge all partitions and end up with a 160 Gb C drive.
    Or if I have to use partition software, is there a decent freeware program I could use as I'm giving the PC away for free?

    cheers

    Downloaded MiniTool

    Thanks,

    Downloaded MiniTool and checked out video, looks like it will work, but haven't used it yet.

    Thanks for the good tip,

    As long as C: is the first partition you can delete the others in Disk Manager (diskmgmt.msc) and then use the Dell "diskpart" utility to expand C:.

    cheers, Paul
