I have Acronis TI Home 10 on Dell home desktop running XP Home with single internal 150G hard drive....normally don't save a lot of stuff, so was using only about 20G of available HD space Over the past month I've created several successful full image backups of my entire C: drive on an external USB HD. Yesterday I successfully created an Acronis Secure Zone on my internal HD....kinda figured that another backup source might come in handy some day....the ASZ was allocated 50G of my 150G of HD space. Today I changed my mind and decided to remove the ASZ. In the Acronis Program in WinXP, I clicked on Tools....Manage ASZ....then followed the remove instructions. The ASZ seems to be gone, but XP Disk Management shows that I still have a 50G un-allocated space partition where the ASZ had been. So I still have only a total of 100G space on my HD....am using 20G....leaves me with only about 80G HD space. How do I remove this un-allocated partition and get my 50G of HD space returned? Hope I'm making myself clear....any help is very much appreciated!
