Default Need help With my hard drive

Hi, im having a problem with my hard drive. Right now it is split up into two seperate drives C: and D: i would like to only have one. because i am running out of space on drive C: where my OS is loaded so if anything else needs to be added to its Settings files or anything it says "hard disk is full" Is there anyway i can combine the two drives without formating them both. i am running windows 2000 pro. Any help would be appeciated.

use partition magic to merge your partitions together or resize them. you need to back all your data to another hard disk or storage device. sometimes PM will not work and corrupt your partitions with these 2 operations

the best way to do this would be to Delete the partition you dont use...and then extend or resize the other to take over the "Unformatted" Space.
but like ek said back all your data and use partition magic v8
