    I am hoping one or more of you computer genuises out there can help me. I have a hard drive that I installed XP Pro on. And lik an idiot I partitioned the drive. Now I don't know how to unpartition it. The drive is basicly useless. How do I wipe it, remove the partition that I put in & reformat it. Right now the drive I have in my pc is only 4 gig and rapidly running out of space!

    Why do you want to unpartition it?

    I dont know what your partition is set for but you will have to reload the whole operating system. you also could go to pricewatch.com or overstock.com and look for a new one. a 20 gig harddrive isnt expensive (thats all I have for my home computer).
