Earlier i had 400 gb in E drive.

I extracted 40 gb from E drive and made a new F drive and installed windows 7 on it.

Now i have formatted the F drive. After that i deleted the F drive and i am left with unallocated 40gb hard disk space.

I want to allocate this 40gb back to E drive.

I did everything using partition magic. But i dont know how to do this.

Please help.

You just need to enlarge/expand/change the size of the E: partition.

I'm not sure that your version of Partition Magic is compatible with Vista/Win 7. I have PM 8.0 and it seems that I made a mental note to myself that I could not use it with any O/S beyond XP.

I was right, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PartitionMagic.

Get Easeus Partition Master which can be run under XP and Vista : http://www.partition-tool.com/personal.htm
Instructions on resizing partition : http://www.partition-tool.com/easeus-parti...g-partition.htm

Earlier you asked you wanted to dual boot XP and Win 7. Now you formatted Win 7 partition, so I gather you have XP left.
