How do you combine partitions in Windows Vista? I've never done it with any other operating system, so even if it were the same as combining them in Windows XP, I wouldn't know how. I have a partition that I don't need that came stock with the computer so I wanted to combine it with my C: drive.

Any help would be awesome, thanks.
