Hey Gang, I'm Mike, and I'm new :-) However, I've browsed the forums here fairly often when looking for fixes for other problems I've had in the past. Figured it was about time to sign up and get some help :-)
So, my desktop has 2 drives, one is partitioned into C and D, the second is E and is used only for page file.
Last night I got the grand idea that I should recombine drive C and D into a single drive, so I used Partition Magic 8 (installed on Drive D) and first matched the sector sizes of C and D. This went off without a hitch.
Next I tried to merge C and D ~ where D becomes a folder inside C. This did not go well at all. It errored out in the middle of the process (probably when PM8 tried to stuff itself into a folder - Not my best idea, in hindsight).
Now I have a folder "D_DRIVE" that has no contents, and the computer does not show / recognize that there is a D drive. However, the C drive is still the same size ~ it does not appear to have actually "absorbed" the D drive.
Can you guys give me an idea of what I should try in order to reverse my poor decision?
Thanks in advance,
