    I have two hard drives and want to remove Disk 1 from the computer to use as the only disk in another computer:

    Disk 0 is the Operating System for this computer and is to remain as is.

    I'm having trouble trying to partition Disk 1...

    1) I want to merge the pale green 4.16 GB of Free space with New Volume 5 (N)

    2) Then, to divide the resulting partion into two equal sized useable partitions

    3) Then, format the 40.56 GB of unallocated space into a useable partition.

    I have got so far with Vista Disk Management and Paragon Partition Manager Free Edition 2010 but can get no further.

    There is data in DRIVE 2 EMPTY (M) that I would like to keep but the rest of Disk 1 is basically empty.

    Any help gladly received. tia

    Hi,

    DISK -2010-03-16_015848.jpg

    You need to rt click the Extended partition on Disk 1 in the Paragon partition list screen , and select Move/Resize.

    ext-par-5-2010-03-16_020648.jpg


    Drag the rt edge to the left , then Apply.

    ext-par-4-2010-03-16_020618.jpg

    The Free space will now be Unallocated space - meaning it will be outside the Extended partition and adjacent to N.

    Very easy then to incorporate it into N.

    Hope it helps.

    Panic over... I managed to delete evey partition except the first DRIVE 2 EMPTY (M) that contained the data i was juggling with... then the new partitions just fell into place. Bingo. Thanks for the reply SIW2, couldn't have done it without you :)
