Thread: Un-Partition the hard disk?

  1. #1

    Post Un-Partition the hard disk?

    How do I remove the extra D-H "drives" from a partitioned disk after moving everything to the first, main C drive?

    Welcome, Carrac!

    Was your hard drive ever compressed? H: is usually the letter used for that.

    If not, you have two choices:

    • 1. Back up your data from C:, and start all over with FDISK and a fresh install of Windows

    • 2. Get a third-party program like Partition Manager to do the job

    And backup your data anyway, any time that you are working with a drive on that level (manipulating th partitions) you should be prepared for disaster......
