When i baught my computer it came with a partition to act as a startup disk. well i didn't need that sense i had startup disks already so i deleated that partition. so now on my main drive i have 35Gb partitioned as my system drive and 5GB unallocated. i want to make it whole again so that my system drive is the full 40GB like it is supposed to be. can you help me?

i dont know why its 5gigs unallocated but i know that when you install the hdd and use partition it, you wont get the whole 40gigs. i used to have a 40gig and it would only come up as 37-38gigs. dont expect to use all the 40gigs you have on your hdd.

i know its not going to be exactly 40 gigs and the reason i have 5 gigs unalicated is because i removed the partition that was acting as my startup disk.

You'll just want to delete both partitions and just create one big partition. You can do this with either with fdisk, during 2000/XP setup, or with a HD setup program.

Partition Magic will give you back that space.

try this. My friend used to have I think it was about 10 Gb unallocated and he fixed using disk management.

control panel -> Administrative Tools -> computer management -> disk management.

See if that fixes your problem.
