Default Resizing partitions

Hello:

I have Win XP Home, and I partitioned my hard drive using the XP
partitioning function (I don't remember, at the moment, where I can access
it, but that is secondary). However, I now need to add more space to my C
dirve. I have partitions C – G, and can "steal" space from any of them, but
I may also want to change the spaces of all partitions.

Before I do something foolish, may I ask if it is possible to (reaonably)
safely resize all partitions. I do make a nightly drive image, so I have
reasonable backup.

Regards,

Hans L

Default Resizing partitions

You can safely resize partitions but you'll need third-party software.
Acronis Disk Director and Norton Partition Magic are two programs to
consider.

Oh, you thought anyone from this /3-YEAR OLD/ thread was actually still
monitoring it. Uh huh. You're too stupid to even notice the datestamps
in the pretend forum's posts. Like we weren't supposed to recognize
that you were spamming here (doing a search and then replying on matched
articles with your spam).

Another boob spamming through the ****ed up webnews-for-dummies Egghead
pretend forum that gateways to Usenet.
