    a friend of mine gave me his machine in hope the I could move the root partition.

    ATM the things are like this:
    40GB HDD split into 2 20GB partition.

    partition #1 drive C is empty.
    partition #2 drive D has Windows, Progam Files, Documents & Settings, ...

    How do I merge this 2 partition without Windows having great problems because it was installed on D drive?

    ashrack,

    Could you remove the tick from "Hide protected operating system files"? This choice is in Folder Options, View tab. Now have a look in the C: drive. What files are present?

    the situation was like this:
    first windows were installed on partition 1 C drive. And then another Windows install was completed on partition 2 D drive. Afterwards the first Windows, from partition 1 C drive, were deleted along with documents&settings, program&files folders.
    So the only crucial thing remaining on the C drive is boot.ini.

    The partition 2 D drive now has Windows, Docs&Settings, Program Files, and other data.

    ashrack,

    Would you mind letting us know ALL of the files in the C: drive. After having removing the tick from "Hide protected operating system files". There must be more than one file.

    When you look at Disk 0 in Disk Management, do you have a Boot and a System drive?


    Edit:- In addition to removing the tick from "Hide protected operating system files", you must also put a dot next to "Show hidden files and folders".
