Partition magic should have worked fine.

What are the paritions you have on your drive.  Be sure to let us know if they are extended or..ummm "I forgot the other term" I think it was logical or primary

Since you are in XP you can go to Control Panel --> Administrative Tools --> Computer Management --> Disk Management and make your disks dynamic.  This will allow you to easily extend your C drive to a larger size.  Also it will prevent the need for 3rd party disk management tools.  If you right click the drive, then select Convert to Dynamic...you will have to reboot twice I believe if I remember correctly and then you will be able to increase it's size safely from within Windows.

At the bottom where it says Disk0 and below that it says Basic then the size of the drive and then online.  If you click in that gray area where those words are you will see the option to convert.
