    I have a hp Pavilion a250n. It was all messed up when I got it, the problem is when reformating I think I selected the wrong partion? Could that be why my F'ing Local Disk (C:) has only 5Gb and my Local Disk (D:) has 110 ? I really don't feel like reformating again, and I'm sure there has to be a way of switching the space and items correct? Help is needed!!!

    If it's one physical disk with more than one partition, you can use a program like Partition Magic to adjust the size of the partitions without losing data.

    Yup. You need to merge partitions. I'm not sure of any freeware that will let you do this though.

    ty ceewi1, I found Partition Magic (cracked) and it worked. Wish there were other ways out there for people who'd rather do this manual. Thanks Again

    What you mean to say is you went to the store and found Partition Magic and bought it with the money you got mowing lawns all last summer.
