my comp was running slow.As i got everthing back together the comp was running much better. A couple of months later my C:// drive was almost full. after inspection, I found that I had re-partisioned the my 60mb. to were it was 10mbs.for C:// drive in ntfs. file and 50mbs. on D:// drive that is in fat 32. file. "What was I smoking" Is there a way for me to correct this problum with out unloading everything and re-partisioning the hard drive again??? Thanks FL

Welcome to the forums!

Unfortunately, the only way to fix this issue is by reformatting...

Changing a file system will wipe everything


Start burning disks! The good news is, you'll just have to format the D drive using windows disk manager.

Thanks for that info. How about this, what is the easiest way to save me important data??? Like where to save from,(location) to save it properly. I never had much luck with the saving process. After thinking I had the data and then to find out i didnt save it properly.

If you have anothe rcomp, by a patch cat5 cable and set up a basic network. look in the network section for my 2 computer network giude, i dont think it is a sticky so it will either be down the bottom of page 1 or on page 2.

Then just tranfer files onto the second comp, reformat, then tranfer (copy) back to the original comp

ig you have a dvd-rw drive then that is the easiest way to backup important files on disk, otherwise multiple cd-rw's are an option. like slothboy said setting up a network could be an answer or if you have another hard drive then 'ghosting' the drive to your spare and then setting it up as the slave would allow you to copy all your files back once you have reformatted.

hope this helps and welcome to the forum!!!

I'm not totally sure i understand your problem, but you could try a bit of software called Powerquest Partition Magic (or a free version called Ranish) that will allow you to create/delete/resize partitions.

If they both go to router setting up network is easy. Make sure your computer name and workgroup are the same on both computers then look in network neighborhood or view workgroup computers in XP

no it isnt partition magic(8) allows you to change fat32 to ntfs and then you can join them as 1 partition
