    The hard disk of my computer has been separated to 6 different partitions.
    I don't know what each of them contains (unless the one where Windows XP is installed and I use) or if it is safe to delete some of them so that I free more space in the partition I use.
    Is there any way to view the contents of each partition?
    Thank you.

    Probably. Can you at least show us a screen shot of Disk Management? If you need help with a screen shot see TSG Posting a Screenshot.

    I would get hold of EASEUS Partition master home which is free or some other modern third party partition tool. The advantage of that is that it lets you use the mouse to resize your partitions on the map and see the result. Then when you are happy with it you can ask it to action the changes. This may require a restart, and even if it doesn't I would suggest you do restart anyway as that is safer.

    In any case these tools let you see the contents of a partition by double clicking on the appropriate partition in the map.
