new partition

Originally the 2nd non-OS disk contained two primary partitions fully
allocated to drives D and drive G. I shrunk both and the unallocated space is
separated by the second former partition (drive G). How can i get the two
unallocated spaces into one area to format and create a new partition

Hi Gail,

You need to use a third party program to "slide" the remaining volumes so
that the space is contiguous. Vista's disk manager is incapable of this
operation. There are many available, including paragon, bootit ng, and
acronis' disk director. The second one, Bootit ng, can be run from a floppy
(if your system has a drive) without actually purchasing it.

Maybe the following freeware would be worth a try:

EASEUS Partition Manager

Hi, again, Gail.

Did you see my reply to your identical post in the other newsgroup?

On those rare occasions when you MUST post the same question to multiple
groups, please cross-post. That is, put all the groups into the Newsgroups
(address) box of a single message. That way, the message will show up in
each of the groups and after I read it in one group, it will be marked
"Read" - for me - in all of them. Each reader will see all the other
replies and we won't duplicate each other's efforts. The payoff for you is
that all the responses will also appear in every group in a single coherent
thread and you won't have to check all the groups for replies.

In the other reply I forgot to mention that what I suggested can be done
with the tools built into Vista, mostly Disk Management. It may be more
work than with 3rd-party software, but it can be done with what you have
already paid for.

R. C.,

Actually, cross posting is bad edicate. The proper thing to do is to find
the appropriate newsgroup to ask the question. And usually ask the question
once. If you don't get a response then it is a question of asking what or
where to go from here.

Hi, James.
Actually, cross posting is bad edicate.

The word is etiquette, modified to "netiquette" when applied to "net
etiquette". It just means "good manners".

I agree that finding the appropriate single newsgroup is almost always the
best approach. That's why my post emphasized "rare occasions" and "when you
MUST post to multiple groups". A few questions/problems really do cross
lines and are appropriate for more than one group. In those few situations,
cross-posting is almost always better than multi-posting.

In the present case, Gail's other post was in
microsoft.public.windows.vista.hardware_devices, and that's where I read it
first and replied. If it had been cross-posted to this NG, my reply would
also have appeared here, along with any other responses - such as replies to
my reply - making for a single thread, rather than disjointed responses
scattered among multiple threads. And other responders would not spend time
and effort answering a question here that had already been dealt with in
another newsgroup. We could use that time to help others whose questions
had not yet been addressed.

I think that most yogis would say that spam isn't enlightening and that
it is not conducive to peaceful meditation. For your penalty go stand
in a corner... on your head, for at least 5 hours!
