More of a question than a problem...I want to know if its possible, and if so how to, take my 150 gig windows 7 partition and merge it with my 340 gig windows xp partition. I dont need to keep the windows xp but i have 300 gigs of files on the xp partition and want to save them. No i do not have another hard drive to transfer to.

EDIT: forr 315 gig xp parition

Can your windows 7 partition see your XP partition as another drive letter when you're running windows 7?

You can use any number of programs...to merge the two partitions. I would delete the XP install Windows folder...before attempting the merge.
