    Default Adjusting space in HDD partitions?

    My hard drive has two partitions, one with too much space, the other with to little. Is there a free program that will allow me to reset the space in the partitions?

    Many thanks,
    Pat.

    gparted / qparted should be able to do this - just remember to back up your data first!

    This one is free Partition Logic

    As Betch said back up your data first, just in case something goes wrong.

    If one of them is your system's C drive (system drive, containing WINDOWS (or WINNT) and Program Files), you can repartition them during Windows Setup (only for NT/2000/XP/Vista tho...). Hope this helps...

    Windows setup can only do destructive repartitioning, it can't resize them (not sure about vista though, but certainly none of the other versions).

    It is a good tool, shame it hasn't been updated since Symantec bought it.
