Re: Can not delete or merge a partition, help please....
Ok Maybe I didnt. But I do not want to uninstall Vista and reinstall. I have
5 GB partition that has nothing on it. And it wont give me an option to get
rid of it or merge it with the C: Drive, even though it is on the same Disk
0. Its not that big a deal but that is 5 GB I could use for music or what
not. If I could post a picture in here of what I am talking about I would.
But any help would be appreciated.
