    hey all,
    my computers hardrive had been divided into two partitions since the day i assembled it,when i asked my dealer why,he said that it was easier to reinstall windows or something like that,but now i can't even find enough space to install F.E.A.R in my master partition,so how can i merge the two of them(there is one drive but two partitions)

    cant you install F.E.A.R. in D: drive?
    i know one way to merge both partitions but data will be lost. boot your pc from a win98 bootable cd and run fdisk. now you can delete both partiotions and make only one partition or change partiotion size. then format drives. install os again.

    What's a location in matrix
    u can use partition magic. it has an option of merging partitions without loss of data. the process may take a few hours but its worth saving ur data.

    You cannot mearge a FAT32 and NTFS partitions. Back up all data from the NTFS partition, re-format it to FAT32 and then use partition magic.

    Otherwise convert the FAT 32 to NTFS and then merge using partition magic.
    Command to convert: convert C: /fs:ntfs .
