removing hard-drive partition without formatting

I am using windows 98 se. Due to a problem I formatted my hard-drive, and re-installed all my software. Since then, when I check my hard drive space, it shows only 1.9gb used and less than 1gb left to use. When I check the circle it is nearly full. I know for certain that my hard drive has a capacity of 20gb, but I think when I reinstalled my software I must have made some error, as my hard drive now reads as disc1
which it did not do before. I must therefore have partitioned my hard drive by accident. Is there any way I can remove this or these partitions, without having to format my hard drive again. Thanks for any help.

try partition magic.it does what it says.its magic and it will let you sort out your partitions to how you like,without any formating.

I think you may have used FAT16 when you partitioned--this will only allow a small partition.You need to cange to FAT32 which will recognise your full hd capacity.Partition magic will do the trick---However I have a utility from an old cover disc that creates a bootable floppy disc and lets you mess with partitions to your hearts content!.Email me if you want a copy and I'll sent it to you.
