Hi,

I have my disk partitioned as
C - Primary
D,E,F as Secondary Logical Partitions.

I am running out of space in C (primary partition) and I want to merge one of these logical partitions(D,E,F) to primary C.
How can I do that? I don't want to do a formatting.

I was able to delete a logical partition from "Disk Adminsitrator" but I don't know how to associate the free space to C's primary partition

Please help me out

Use Partition Magic.  You will have to purchase it.

Using Partition Magic you need a backup.
It is able to lose or crash some partitions.

Any software installed on D: E: F: will not be found by NT when you have merged the applications.

A second harddisk may be a better choice in some cases.

There are no standard and save ways to enhance the diskspace of your system partition. you can only do this with partition magic as Geoffryn stated.

All othter partition can be enhaced through the disk administrator
