How can I merge C:\ with another partition?

Posted: 01-20-2009, 03:39 PM

Hi

I'm one of those people who thought it would be a cool idea t
partition 20GB for Vista out of a 320GB hard drive for "aesthetic
reasons. Now I'm falling back on this idea because my programs ar
installed ona different drive letter and do not show up on the Progra
Files. On top of that, if I get a virus or some sort of anoyyin
malware, formatting the vista partition does NOT make my program file
still usable.

So here's my situation, drive C:\ is for Vista, drive E:\ is jus
Program Files. Is there a way I can merge the two drives withou
re-installing Vista (chipset drivers, drivers, software, preferences
urrrghhh....)? Without re-installing all the contents of E:\Progra
Files? Making E:\Program Files\ show up in the Program Files menu

Thanks in advance
Ma

Can't "merge" two partitions. One of 'em has to go.

If you're going to use Vista's Disk Management, it will have to be E.
Obviously, you'll have to reinstall all the programs that are on E.
