I had cloned a 500 gb Samsung SSD, from a 320 gb HD...a mistake, as I had to allocate a drive letter to the unallocated portion. A minor issue, but anyhow, a few months later, I was doing some cleanup, and chose to compress the contents. Another mistake, as now the OS could not be accessed. I still had the old HD, and am using it for my main disc, running W 7.
Anyhow, wondering how to start over and get the SSD back to one partition...can I simply reformat both?
And, if I'm successful, can I then copy the contents of the current C drive over, but not clone it, so as to be able to then have use of the whole drive as one? Alternatively, I could start over and reinstall the OS to the SSD, I suppose. But the old install is working fine.
Thanks, in advance, for any helpful tips.
