    right now i have two partitions on my hdd, both have xp installed. I want to to delete the first partition, c drive, and put the free space in the second partition, d drive. In partition magic i did the following things:

    delete C drive
    allocate free space to d drive

    if i click apply changes it gives me the warning: "there is no active partition. are you sure you want to apply changes?" so i click no and now i'm stuck. also i cannot find any option to set D as the active partition.

    in partition magic it says d drive is "logical". should i convert it to "primary"?

    if i go ahead and click yes will it mess up my hdd/data?

    I have partitioned my C: drive (with my main data) while windows was installed. It worked fine. PLEASE PLEASE defrag first, otherwise it WILL fail.
    3xploit says thanks.

    If I understand correctly:

    Windows is installed on C and D
    You want to delete C
    You wanna take the space from C and put it to D

    If so, then make D the primary drive!
