Hi!
When I bought my computer it was already "shared" into to
logical units. C: and D: . What shall I do to get rid of the D: unit and only use one unit C:\?
Does it dissapear when i formate my computer or do I have to use a special program to do it. Please give me detailed information on how I shall do or where to get the required software.

Thank you

With standard commands, you cannot combine the two partitions to one single partition.
Lucky for you, there is specialised software that can establish that. One of these softwares is 'partition it' from quarterdeck.
For info, visit..
http://www.cnet.com/Content/Reviews/Hands/121696/part.html
Or the quarterdeck site (http://www.quarterdeck.com/)

You can ofcourse recreate your entire partition but then you will loose all your data. Make shure you have a good bootable disk before you recreate the entire disk.
HINT:
Make a good backup of your entire disk and restore it after you've recreated the disk

What is your operating system and version?
"logical units"......  Hard drives or partitions on a single drive?
How many physical drives do you have?

mrc,
You have two options:
1. Buy Quarterdeck programs;
2. Backup all your c; and D: drives. Then fdisk your HDD using win95\command\fdisk command (not fdisk).    Dan
