    Hello, I partitioned my hard drive before i installed XP splitting my hard drive into 2 separate partitions. I installed XP onto the 2nd partition (D:} and i used the C: for all my movies and music. No i have just got another hard drive as mine is nearly full but i want to partition my original hard drive into 1 partition (like new) if possible without losing my windows files, program files & settings and then copy all my music and movies over to my new hard drive.


    What would be the best way to do this?
    Bearing in mind that my boot files are stored on the C: drive. With this been the case i was thinking it might work if i reinstalled XP after I've made it into 1 partition and label it D: drive, would that work?

    Here's a picture so you get the idea of whats what
