Window 2k problem

My win2k became corrupted so i tried the repair. It
didn't work. So I then just reinstalled it to a different
folder on the same drive.When I did this my default drive
changed from C: to I:. The C: drive is now a 15mb
partition. So later when I try to upgrade to WinXP it
won't load because the C: drive is to small.I tried to
use partition magic 8.0 but it wouldn't reboot. So I
reloaded to another folder on the same drive. Now my C:
drive is back where it was before and I now have an
H:drive of 15mb.But I now have 2 folders with system
files. It boots from the newest folder. The other folder
has all of my programs and data. The data I can save but
how can I merge the 2 folders to get my machine back to
the way it was? Is this possible?

i'd first backup
your data

then run a drive diagnostic.

if your drive is ok...

i's delete all partitions and start over fresh

and no, you cannot 'merge' the folders
