    hello,

    i was going to make a partition to install windows xp on, so i made a 10GB partition.

    my XP OS cd wasnt working, so i gave up and 'deleted' the partition.



    but now my main partition where Vista is displays: 93GB free of... instead of 103GB!



    i thought i deleted the partition?



    what happened?



    any help is appreciated!





    ---------------------

    EDIT

    ---------------------



    nevermind i found out what to do:



    right click the 'C' partition thing.



    click 'EXPAND'.



    choose the partition you dont want.



    next.



    then done.

    Just because you deleted the other partition the remaining one will not be resized automatically. But you can use disk managment in Vista to try and extend the Vista partition.
