backup harddrive

From the factory my computer has a 100Ghz hard drive and uses 70G as C:/ and 30G as d:/(backup?). Is there any way to make it like 90G C:/ and 10G D:/?

Partition magic but it's risky doing so with the partition you run your OS on. I'd recommend adding another HD if possible. They are dirt cheap now and 100 gigs is really pretty small by today's standards.

like mentioned, partition magic is really your only choice. I've used it on my main partition and didn't have a problem but definitely back up your data!

Just scrap the D: all together, it's worthless. If you suffer a drive failure, both partitions are gone anyway, since they're on the same physical drive.

How do you scrap it? That's actually what I wanted to do anyways.

Delete the D: then use partition magic to grow the C: to fill the entire space.

Check here, I've used it for other things, but it does have partition tools and is completely free.
