So. XP is installed on C: the first partition. It says "boot" on the second partition, wich is kinda weird cause its an extended partition.

There's no way you will get this done without a clean format. As far as I can tell Windows is installed on C: and all programs are installed on D:?

You could get Partition Magic, merge them and use drivemapper to change anything pointing to D: to C:.

Its risky and u could end up with a system that won't boot. (wich is fixable by the way).

I would uninstall some programs installed on D: to free up some space.

Or just back-up all important data, screw around with the partitions and re-install Windows.

Please correct me if I am wrong. Windows is on C: and most programs are installed on D:?

I am under the assumption that everything I use is installed on D:

I just assumed I had to install everything there although I can access drive C: when logged on..

Can I use this to my advantage and just install everything on the C drive? It has a considerable ammout of space compared to the D drive

Drivemapper is part of Partition Magic 8. Go to PowerQuest.com for more info. (redirects to Symantec website)

Search google for more info.
