I hv another Partition of 5 GB and i like to merge the 2 Partitions and make it to 10 GB.. I think then the sys runs fast.. cos i use Adobe PS and it takes a lot of time to load and make my sys very slow..

    So i need to knw wats the best way to do this.. and also i dont want to didturb my OS.. No re-installing OS again..

    TIA

    Mearging two partiton won't gain much speed.make sure u have kept the root drive(C:) clean coz dumping too much files or installing lots of software can cause the os to slow down.Remember to keep the C: free with atleast 1-1.7GB of free space.If u want to mearge the partition then the best bet is Partition magic.

    Before a PC of course!!!
    no merge partition will help. U should install the Adobe PS CS in a differnet partition and msot importantly the temp files dir in a diff partition, same goes with a dedicated swap twice ur RAM size

    If you shell out enough money try Partition Magic or try that free tool Digit provided (forgot the name)
