    Any bootable partitioning software can get this job done. I use GParted that comes with the Parted Magic iso. There is still a free version even though you may find a pay scale. Major Geeks has the free one available for download.

    I guess I didn't look close enough at the two window frames presented. I was looking for Disc Management to be under Tools rather than Storage,....guess I was thinking of this as a management operation (to defrag), requiring tools, rather than a static storage situation.

    I've been caught by some similar 'misunderstand of the computer language' before. One time very early on I saw the word Reformat. I took it to mean a reorganization of the material stored within, not the wiping out of all the material. I guess it was the English language I grew up with,...reformatting was not deleting and starting over again.

    And in photography I always thought of Resolution as a means of improving the quality of the photo, nothing to do with the size of the photo as there is a world for that, SIZE or resizing.

    Was that instruction directed to me?

    What do I do with that pretty sizable file on my C-drive that was created when I loaded Win7 onto my existing XP system?

    Do I pick and choose certain things, and then discard the remainder of that file, (particularly the 'old' system stuff) ?
