I installed Windows 2000 on a dual boot. W2K is on the second partion (D: ) and Windows 98 is on the first (C: ). I am now at a point to where I no longer use Windows 98 and I would like to remove the partition. I have Partion Magic to remove the partition but I am wondering what that will to do to my Windows 2000 as it changes from D: to C:. Will it automaticlly adjust? Is there a utility to change it for me?

If necessary I will leave the original partition and just make it much smaller but that is not my first choice. If I do this, how small of a partition can it be?

Since you installed 2000 on the D: partition, it is going to freak if you change the partition. The Master Boot Record will show that the OS is installed to the D: partition, while the OS will be residing on the C:

I would just leave it and shrink the D: part. Leaving a few hundred megs over what it already is using. This should allow for the paging file to expand and leave room for your profile to expand.

Thanks for the info. That is what I was thinking. I will shrink the c: partition as small as I can (maybe I'll use it for a data backup)
