Partitioning Hard drive

  DLT 15:29 23 Apr 03

I've a old PC with a 10GB hard drive - but for some reason, it's been partitioned into 5 2GB drives. Trouble is, we have about 10 users who log on this PC - and all have large profiles (the machine runs NT4 by the way). Hence there isn't enough space on the C: drive - and profile keep getting corrupted!

Is there a way I can re-partition these to have 2 5GB drives??

I purchased Partition Magic 8 last week and that will enable you to create or alter the size of your hdd (£49.99) or £39.99 from Argos i have just noticed.

That should be create a partition or----

The fact that 2Gig is the size of the existing partitions may be relevant...

I'm not too much of an expert on this, (or on anything really, jack of all, master of none kind of thing!), but perhaps 2 Gig can't be exceeded with your present setup.

You say it's an old PC. Perhaps the bios wont recognise bigger than 2 Gig drives/Partitions.

Just a thought, apologies if I'm wrong.
