    Need your urgent help.
    I have dual boot and HD of 40 GB divided in three partitions
    -C:\ WINXP
    -D:\ As archive and
    -G:\ Win 98 SE
    Today ,for the first time try to resize partition C:\ and increase Free Space - to take the free space from partition G:\.(abt 2 GB )
    Used Disc Direktor Suite 9.0 build 918 and following program instructions arrived to last operation.
    But after a while program hangs and a message appear asking me if I like to cancel operation.Click on Yes but all was frozen, so I disconect PC.
    When try again to repeat opration found that on partition G:\ there is no more free space with red crossed sign on it.
    On the properties sreen all disc space was shown as used.
    Now regardless from which partition I try to take the free space , receiving an Error message:
    "Acronis Disc Direktor Suite was not able to increase from space on selected partition.The current size of the selected partition is the maximum possible".
    Please advice me how I can solve this inconvinient because I am practicaly bloced to resize any of my partitions.
    Please note I use Disc Direktor Suite as stand alone apps through OS selector and TI 8.0
    Try also with bootable CD but with the same results ( in safe mode and also in full opertional mode ) , always receiving a/m Error message
