My laptop came with the Hard Drive already parititoned into 2 seperate drives, but I only use one and used the other for backup. I have a 1TB external Hard Drive now and want to know if I can make the 2 drives into 1?

Laptop is Toshiba Satelite L350d Windows Vista Premium
Hard Drive is Hitachi and is 150GB partitioned into 2 seperate hard drives.

If the Hitachi is the one you want to modify, yes you can. There is a program called Partition Magic that will remove the partition or move it. I just downloaded a program HERE that removes and moves partitions also. It's a free program, but apparently does not work with 64bit windows. I used it to shrink the D: drive on my laptop. I have stuff on there, but wanted my C: drive larger. It took less than 10 minutes to do. It says to back up your stuff first and I would agree with that no matter what you use... :thumbsup:
