    I am using Win Xp Sp3 fully patched in a RAID configuration. I need to resize my C drive (make it larger) by using free space from another (non-adjacent) partition. I tried to accomplish this using the wizard but it does not work. Then I tried to resize two adjacent partitions. That did not work either. All partitions in question are NTFS.

    Suggestions will be appreciated.

    What version and build of DD are you using?

    Are you trying when running DD in Windows or when running DD booted from the DD CD?

    Can you post a screenshot of what DD shows (in Manual Mode) for your drive?

    I'm using version 10.0 build 2,117.

    I'm try to do the resize from Windows.

    I'll try from the CD. Also I'll post a screen shot but it may be awhile - later tonight or tomorrow. I' in the US CDT time zone.

    I was unable to merge 2 adjacent partitions using DD. I solved the problem by deleting one of the partitions so that it became unallocated space. Then I resized the C Drive using the unallocated space. Don't forget to save all the important stuff off the partition you are deleting first.

    You might also want to consider updating to the current build (2,160).
