Okay, here's my problem. I had 3 partitions of my 20 GB hard drive. Two were 5 GB each C: & D:, and one was 10 GB E:. The first two are system files and documents C: and program files D:, and the last one is my music E:. Now, I reformat my hard drive about once every two months or so. What I mean by reformat is I erase the first two and reinstall Windows and programs, and I leave E: to back up my documents & music. I do all this with the partition manager on the XP CD. Then I decided it was time to combine C: and D: because I was running out of space on D: and had lots on C:. So I erased both and repartitioned both again (because the XP manager won't let me combine them without erasing E: first for some annoying reason. Then I went into the command prompt and used diskpart to erase D: so there was only free space there and then extend the C: drive so that it would be 10 GB. The problem is that now it says I have C: which is 10 GB, D: which is 10 GB, and 5 GB of free space. So now the total in disk manager says 25 GB which I know is not correct. -> Takes A Deep Breath <- And then I installed PartitionMagic 8, which doesn't work. I get "Error 117: Partition's drive letter could not be identified". And I'm not trying to back up 10 GB worth of mp3's onto cds. Not gonna happen. I don't have that kind of time on my hands. My computer has just decided to ruin my life. Oh joy.
