Hi, I have a DELL notebook that I have made image copies of the hard drive. DELL has something called MEDIADIRECT3 that takes up a 2GB partition and allows the computer to fast boot into the MEDIADIRECT software (without a full blown windows boot) and allows access to things like DVD's, Outlook contacts, pictures, PowerPoint, etc. In thory this sounds kind of cool. However in practice windows does not take so long to boot (at least on my notebook) so I don't think there is as big a need. Plus as it turns out MEDIADIRECT is kind of buggy - I found issues with both Outlook and Quickbooks. There is a patch that fixes the Outlook issue but at this point I just want MEDIADIRECT off my notebook without going all the way back to a reformat and fresh installl, if possible. I can uninstalled the program from the Windows partition but I would like to reclaim the space from the MEDIADIRECT partition (preferably as part of the windows partition). I see how I can uncheck the MEDIADIRECT partition so it is not restored. However what can I do to make the restore process eliminate the MEDIADIRECT partition and instead allocate the extra 2GB to the windows partition? Perhaps this is not possilbe and I need a product like Partition Manager? Thanks for any insight!
