My SONY computer, XP Home installed, recently needed a new HD due to the main 15 gig partition on the original 120gig HD was getting full and causing problems. I installed a 200 gig HD and restored the default factory load to the new drive, then installed all of my software back again. The problem is: When the restoration was finished, instead of using all 200 gigs of the new drive as a single partition, the Sony restoration package made the boot partition15 gigs again. I cannot find a way around Sony's software to make this partition larger. I don't think it's possible to increase a partition without formatting the disc, is it? Right now, with a barebones load of software that I use, I have 500 MB of disc space on the C_Drive. That's just not going to hack it. I do have a new copy of XP Home and could start from scratch, however I'm a little wary that drivers and such may be missing... Sony is so proprietary about things, I'm afraid I may lose key features of the computer. Any suggestions? How about this... Clone the contents of the 15 gig C_Drive partition onto a new HD and ideally, into a 50 gig partition to become the c_Drive on that HD. Is that possible? Or is there another way?
