  • repartitioning HD for Mediacar possible?

    Hi all,

    I have a 40G HD and I partitioned it C:\20G, D:\10G, E:\10G.
    C:\ is for XP and progs, D:\ for mp3's and E:\ for divx.

    You probably guessed it, my D:\ drive is full and E:\ has loads of space. Can I repartition this into 2 drives (C:\20G and D:\20G) without having to reinstall or copy mp3's. I don't mind to lose all that is on E:.

    Or is there another way to read 2 drives by Mediacar?

    Thanks, Michael

      You can also modify partitions just by using XPs drive tools

        you can, but i'm pretty sure it wipes the data if you do it through xp disk manager, whereas partition magic will keep all the data.

          Thanks,

          Partition Magic, hmm.
          Doesn't sound like a freeware app.
          I'll try moving some partitions around
          with XP drive tools on the home pc first.

            The XP stuff WILL delete all your files if you use it.

            You will need Partition Magic. It is WELL worth the money.

                  Yes Partition Magic is the only real way to do it. It may take a while for it to move the stuff around, but it will save the headache of moving the stuff around using another computer.

                  Also, be sure to back up your data first. :-)

                    So I used Partition Magic, everything turned out right.
                    Had to drive around for an hour while P Magic was shuffling files around, because I was scared to run out of power. Also careful to avoid the bumpy bits, didn't want to skip on the HD when merging partitions. I have plenty of room now for more mp3's.

                        nada, its not free. $10 instant, $20 mail in IF you are UPGRADING your existing partion magic, and another $40 mail in.

                        personally, I *hate* mail-ins...you know it had to be invented by some marketing guy to gather sales stastics and demographics :-P
