how do I manage partitions

Please help, I have bought a computer with a 40 gb hard drive, it as been partioned into 2, a 10 gb master (C) and a 30 gb partion (D). How can I resize it so that it is a complete 40 gb hard drive? Many thanks. tesfred1944

You may regret not keeping your personal files on a separate partition to your Windows System if you ever have a crash and have to do a system restore.

If everything is on one partition your personal files will get wiped when Windows wipes the System partition and replaces them with new System files.

Sorry, I meant if you ever have to do a system 'Re-install'.
