Dell's 'backup partition' removal
A friend of mine recently bought a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop, and found that the so-called 120 GB hard disk had ended up as a ~70 GB C: partition and a ~35 GB D: partition for backup. The backup was supposed to be accomplished by a time-limited version of Norton Ghost 9 (I think). So I trundled down with my trusty copy of Partition Magic 8 (or 8.5).
However, on Removing Norton Ghost, the reboot asked if I wanted to delete the D: partition and add the space to the C: partition, presumably via a subset of Partition Magic, which of course Symantec now owns.
So the C: drive ended up at 106 GB, which was what was desired, with almost no work on my part...
