    Hello all. At one time, I had a partition in my seagate hard drive (120mb) that made my C: drive 60mb. I removed this partition using disk management, but for now it says the space is just 'unallocated.' I would like to take this space back and use it, but I don't know how. Thanks to anyone who can help.

    Right click on the window with un allocated and it will give you a list I can't remember to make it a logical drive

    When I right-click, I get a choice of new partition, properties, and help. I didn't think I wanted a new partition, I know the properties, and I'm asking for help. By the way, thanks for such a quick reply :)

    OK...yes I want a bigger C: But right-clicking C didn't do the trick, or maybe I was trying in the wrong place? ? ? I tried all over the place in disk management, and again in my computer.

    I use Partition Magic, with it you can arrange your partitions any size you like.
    Its a great program to have.
