I'm aware that Partition Magic is good for resizing partitions, but is there any freeware available which can do the same thing? My C drive no longer boots (device error???) so I used the XP startup disc to create a D drive and boot into that. I was then able to copy important files from C directly into the new drive. The problem is that the C drive is partitioned to use 95% of my hard drive. I'd like to be able to change this percentage and make the D drive larger. I hope this makes some sense. Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

Have a look here Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Apps for Ranish Partition Manager
I finally got it all together, now if I could just remember where I put it.
