I have a Windows XP Home Edition with 80 GB hard disk and 512 MB RAM. My C drive has less space available. I can not delete important data in it.

Please guide me how can I rearrange the drive spaces and increase their size.

Hi,

You can redistribute space among your partitions using Partition Magic Version 8.  

1. Install Partition Magic 8.

2. Open Partition Magic Wizard.

3. From Pick a task Table, select Redistribute free space

Here, you can redistribute free space from your somewhat empty partitions to your C drive.

Enjoy,

Stephney

When you use your operating system (in this case Windows XP) you give it a whole drive for only its use. Its better to dedicate that drive for only that purpose. Don't store "your" data on that drive. This will make your PC slower. I mean it'll take more time to boot up. Its best to keep your personal data or documents on other drives.

If you really want to re distribute your hard drives space, you can do it while installing Windows XP or use some software like Easeus partition, master9.1.0 partition magic etc. Just install the software, select the drive adjacent to "C drive"; define the amount you want to add from that drive to C and let the software do the rest.

Thanks

You can adjust the size of your partitions without formatting.  It is done with software like "partition magic".   You can transfer a portion of a partition to another partition, the one you want to enlarge: the former will inevitably end up being smaller.

So the first thing to do, save all your data and what about your two partitions. Next, you throw on your Windows CD as an installation and there he will ask you what partition you want to install, or it will ask if you want to partition your disk and it is as long as you do your share .
