    Hi all,

    I want to expand a partition (delete ubuntu from system and now have soms free space). But i can't do it with the diskmanager in Vista (why won't it do that ) ?

    Why can't I do this ? And witch program do i have to install then ? Because partionmagic is now owned by Sygmatec and it doesn't seem to work on vista.

    Tips anyone ?

    The free space has to be at the end of the volume, so you'll need to shift D: to the left and then resize it over the free space that will be to the right.

    Vista's Disk Management tool is particularly tricky when trying to shrink a volume that has unmovable data scattered across it.

    But I want to extend my C: drive not my D: drive. So isn't it at the right place then ?

    Anybody else any idias ?
