This is my second computer. When it was set up, partition magic was used to create drives C: D: E: . My old C: drive was saved in E: to save music and picture files, but it also contains anything else that was in C: ( file folders, applications, program files, etc., you name it!) Can Drive E: be removed or deleted without messing up my computer? C: 47 GB, 30 GB free space, D: 14 GB, 208 MB free, E: 25 GB, 18 GB free. Thanks for any help. My first post. Trying to learn something. Great site.

With Partition Magic, you can delete/resize whatever partition you like.

The key, of course, is to ensure that you move whatever files are currently there which you desire to keep...to another partition.

That D: partition looks like it needs to be resized.

If your intent is to delete E and expand D, do this in separate operations...deleting E: first (creating unallocated space) and then resize D to absorb that space.

My experience is that PM works best when you don't try to do too many things at one time.
