    I added 97gb for a part of the drive and 30gb on another half.. and my HD is 186GB in all so now I have 58GB of free space.

    What I want to know is how do I add this free space to my 30gb partition?

    I dont want to format anything

    Extend is a Vista function ... It looks like Moe has XP

    I'm curious why F is labeled as a boot partition ??
    Otherwise it could be deleted .. then a new partition added to include all the empty space.
    The data in F would have to be relocated before you do this.
