I have two drives in my XP Sp2 machine: C = 80 G and D/E = 120 G. I want to zero out the 120 and repartition it to one large one. But I've used it as the destination for a number of downloaded programs - ad-aware, spy-bot and the like as well as some I've purchased thru online sales (state tax codes etc.). How do I move everything over to C and back again without loosing all those addresses and links?

Thanks

If they're installed applications, you need to install them again. I suppose if you were to ZIP up the entire set of folders, and back them up, then restore them to the same drive letter, they should work after that.

I always install all applications on C: to avoid any issues like this.
