I hope really someone can help me.

Ok, I personally built my own computer. When I installed windows vista it instructed me to Partition vista to me C:\ So I allocated just enough memory for that drive to hold vista. Recently I purchased Adobe Photoshop and it says it must be installed on my C:\. So here is my question.

How can I take memory from my D:\ partition and add it to my C:\ partition Using Vista?????

PLEASE HELP!!!!

You may be able to shrink the size of D:/partition IF: it is formatted as a NTFS file system. If so, right click computer, click manage and then select disk management. This will bring up a screen that shows your hard drives c: d: etc. Your hard drive should show two blue bars for each partition. Right click the D:partition and select "shrink volume". This will allow you to "move" space to the continguous partition (C:). I do not know if having Windows XP on your D: partition will prevent you to do this. However, also be aware that you may lose any or all data on the D: partition. Hope this helps.

I had similar problems when I recieved my new comp, I successfully resolved the issue using this downloadable software which I paid for, there is a free demo but i'ts just for show, you need to pay for the real thing, but I do recommend it.
