I always thought there was no way to remove partitions without reformatting the drive, but the description of Acronis DiskEditor says it can edit partition data manually. (not that it can do it without losing the data on it)
I, during a fit of genius, partitioned my primary and only drive into two partitions, and did not make C anywhere near big enough so I have a lot of space issues when installing programs despite having over 20 gigs of free drive space left.
I have a 2nd hard drive to install, but no mounting bracket, I'll be getting one soon, but this would be so much nicer than having to copy the drive then reformat, then replace.

I am not familar with Acronis DiskEditor but Digtal Dolly will. Download in to an empty folder and unzip it, then burn a copy of the contains of that folder to a cd in .iso format. Once the .iso image has been burned it is self booting and needs no OS to work. It will repartition, resize , fomat, wipe, drive image, and several other useful utilities.

I've got Acronis Disk Director v10 - and I'd still prefer an automated tool to doing it manually. One little goof in the editor can hose your entire hard drive.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
