hello folks....
i need to repartition one of my drives and cant seem to work out how.
have searched through previous related threads and nothing seems to shed any light on the subject.
my c:drive is basically full whereas i have nearly 30gb free in the other partition.
hope someone out there can help
cheers

Grab this (http://dw.com.com/redir?edId=3&siteId=4&oId=1770-20_4-0&ontId=20_4&spi=e0979282fb731dd08beef541c487db28&lop=link&tag=tdw_dltext&ltype=dl_dlnow&pid=11234487&mfgId=10044738&merId=10044738&pguid=nudNzwoPjF0AADQvXCEAAAEU&destUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fdownload.cnet.com%2F3001-20_4-10863346.html%3Fspi%3De0979282fb731dd08beef541c487 db28), you'll need to make the d: (or second partition) smaller to leave free space after the c:, then make the c: larger.

Hi Wratty does the free one do 64 bit I looked on their site and it seems to be a bit vague so can someone confirm if it does or not as I have win7 64bit

The PRO version does work in X64 but not the free version.

If you are going to pay for a program, get Acronis, very well worth the money.

Maybe you could Google "Paragon", it's free and will probably do the job but 64bit?, I don't know.

Gparted works well, but vista fails to boot so youl need to do a vista repair.
I use puppylinux since its small fast and has many utilities.
