I'm running XP Pro, with two HDs. About a year ago I had a problem which necessitated reinstalling XP on a new drive. So now I have #1 drive with partitions C & E, and #2 drive with partitions D & G. XP is located on G and my MS Office 2003 is on E. (Confused Yet?) I had moved MS office to E because G was too full.
G is now really too full, only 15% free space, so I decided to merge E into C using Partition Magic (PM), then copy D onto a huge unallocated area of Drive #1. I ran windows Disk Check prior to doing the merge OK.
I then executed Merge of E into C, but at the end of the process which included a reboot, some errors were listed "Error 1651 - Index has nonzero length, File (three file numbers listed)". However, the word "Complete" also appeared, so I thought the merge had in fact completed. When I was asked to run DriveMapper, I clicked OK and it ran. When I went back to PM home, I discovered that the merge had not completed. I also discovered that I could not access MS Office or Outlook, which is my primary email tool.
Now what? I am at a loss as to how to fix this. Any suggestions?
