How can I delete a Partition on my hard drive?

Recommended Posts

If you are refering to using the run command from Windows to reformat a drive partition, better to use the management tool this way. Right click My Computer icon->click on manage->then in the left pane, click on disk management. There you can delete a partition, reformat, set allocation size, but you can't do it on the drive your booted in. There you need to shut down Windows and use the utilities from the XP Installation CD.

You can do all of this from the administrative tools section of windows XP.. You can delete the partition then assign the space to a new drive or add space to an existing drive..

compmgmt.msc

But Partition magic would most likely be easier to use..
