What software are you using to manage partitions? And what OS are you using and File System type (ie, FAT, NTFS, etc.?)

Normally you would delete a patition and then resize the other one to manage the first one's space....but I need more detail.

well if he already has data on it thats not possible unless he backs up his data. dna8260 use powerquest partition magic. they have the functions resize/merge/combine partition.

Well....the correction was unnesessary and not correct, you can delete a partition with data on it but you might want to back up your data.

Totally kidding Bruce.....I'm in a funky mood!!!
