    Hi guys.My 30 gig HD is split into 3 partitions.I moved everything to the "C" partition and would like to have just one big hard drive.Is this possible to do without losing any of my data?I could always reinstall programs if need be but most important are my wifes e-mails in Outlook and her Word,Excel documents she has saved.The computer is running Windows ME.Thanx in advance for your thoughts on this issue.

    I hasten to point out, you should have a good backup BEFORE you start the process, if PM burps, you lose everything. :)
