delete the swap file and hibernate files on the xp partition while booted to vista and try again. Should work then :)

Partition Magic doesn't support Vista and some other advanced OS after Vista after it is powered by Powerquest.

Windows Vista doesn't allow you to extend the partition with the following conditions:

1. there isn't any unallocated space next to the C drive

2. the C drive is FAT but not NTFS

Solution for the above limitations:
To extend Vista C drive even if there is no unallocated space or the partition is FAT, please visit:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
