OMG.. it solved all my partition issues in winks..

Many thanks for the tips, Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 4.0.1 works perfectly.
I have 50gb for C drive but D drive more than 400gb. C drive run out the space very quickly. When I used the software, I was bit worry, after reading help instructions. I decided swap the sizes of two drive; by deleting the D drive and then increase the size of C drive by sliding. I have to rename the D drive though, after restart, voila, the problem of partition's size is solved.
When you delete one partition, then slide to increase other, don't you lose your data in partition that you deleted. your input will be helful and I would appreciated.

Yes yhou loose the data. I would first move the data you want to keep to the C partition.

Good Luck
do you also lose data in c drive while doing this????plzzz help
Thank you
i have OS C, D recovery , and G data , G is emty I already delete G but I cant add unlocated space to os C window vista anyone help plz
Thank you
It seems SO simple, yet I dont think its working for me. When I resize my D: drive and slide it over, so the unallocated is on the left, than slide my C: drive to the right, it doesnt add the gigs to C: drive, it merely puts the unallocated to the left of C: drive. Will this do the trick? I dont want to click apply without knowing what im doing for sure. And also when I start, I automatically have an unallocated amount that is exact to the space free on my D:. I cant move that one, but I removed it and tried the previous steps, still doesnt add the data to C: just moves the unallocated to the left or right of C: Please help!
Thank you
Hi experts!
I am in a pickle.....I enlarged my D partition which was formatted for Fat32 to add Fat32 files -IPod media recovered files which were not accessable/loadable by my media players/editors. It sounds like I could have reformatted this to NTSF, but don't know if that would make a difference (very confusing). I used Easeus partition manager, which seems so easy to do this with and it went through a process of moving files on C drive. All seemed perfect and I was excited when it rebooted feeling now at least I could test my theory and hope for the best in truely converting my files into readable media files.
Once it rebooted, before Windows XP launched, I got an error message:
Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: <windows root>\system32\hal.dll
Please re-install a copy of the above file.

I've done a lot of research on this and the information I got said this usually doesn't mean a hal.dll file problem, it means that your boot.ini file needs to be worked on -copied, reloaded/istalled, etc. Not having my original Window XP setup disc I ran through the steps of changing boot order in Bios- no improvement. I purchased bootable iso set up files for XP, burned to bootable CD using Nero which booted my computer to set up utilities mostly Dos script processes (very advanced for an un-educated IT guy). I found a tool within the utilities which got me into the file contents of both C and D partitions and located the boot.ini file in drive C. it seems like this would be the place to edit, copy from or reorganize the set up order to have Winows launch or recognize while booting up.

Does anybody know how to make sure this file is in the right place, or how to put it in the right place, edit details, or is the C partition not launching first, is it launching the D partion first which doesn't have the OS or boot.ini file within,
How the file got mis-placed in the first hand?

Lots of questions, but bottom line- Computer won't start Windows, therefore I can't use it! Arghh...

Your help is much appreciated!!

Thank you
WOW! I have to admit to being totally amazed my this software! I have an old external HD that had two partitions on it that I was intending to give to a friend, but didn't want to confuse her with the two drive letters on one physical drive, plus I wanted to merge the partitions to reclaim the space.

Partition Master seems to have done the trick... flawlessly! VERY intuitive, it was a 2 stage process; first delete the smaller of the partitions, then increase the size of the other to reclaim the space using a slider bar... it couldn't be easier. Once I'd finished I did a quick format to NTSF then looked at the drive in Win Explorer and Disk Manager (Management) and it's perfect... what a great piece of software!
Thank you
very helpful software,, worked well for me,, thanks!!

go to your control panel, under system maintenance, click on administrative tools, click create and format disk partitions, then right click the second partition (most likely d) and delete the volume, next just right click the primary (most likely c) then click extend volume, the wizard should pop up, follow the 3 or four steps, and your done. any questions email Email Id removed for security

Forget everything guys. I tried EASEUS, Partition Magic. Nothing worked.
Only the angel came at my rescue -


The most simple thing without an inch of ado.

U'll love it. Trust me.
have you try Partition Wizard? You might change your mind bit...
Perfect. Tested multiple times on my test pc and just perfect. Exactly what I needed to resize a partition.

EASEUS is the best.

Created some partitions on my HD a later realized have less space on my C-drive.
I slashed a cool 50gs from one drive and merged it to C for my super support programs.
