    when i first got my computer i came up with a lofty way of partitioning my 16o gb hard drive into different sections for different purposes like media partition and a system and a possible linux/ UNIX partition. but i haven't followed my plan and my f ( 60 g's) drive is almost full and my E drive ( 50 g's ) is completely empty can i combine the drives without messing up all of my file paths? maybe if i named the new drive f it would change anything? e is completely empty though

    Well, yes if you use a program like Partition Magic that does non-destructive partitioning you can then id the partition as F, and not have lost your paths.
