One of my harddrives have partitions that I would like to remove. Except I need help on how to do this, as I have no idea. :waughh:

They are all NTFS, have nothing on them, are accessable from My Computer, but I don't know how to remove patitions.

If you could help, I would really start:banana!

Thanks :D.

Go into Disk Management (right click My Computer->Manage->Disk Management) and delete the partitions. If you are using XP you will not be able to re-size with this tool (you can with Vista).

Otherwise use something like Knoppix and QTParted to resize.

Welcome to PressF1.

You don't mention what OS you are running, but have a read of this: How to use Disk Management to configure basic disks in Windows XP (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/309000) - specifically the delete partition section.

Let us know if you require further help. :)

Thanks

Note that a partition could/may contain more than one logical drive.

Yep, use Gparted. By far the easiest free option.
