I have a hd with 4 NTFS partitions. I want to reconfigure the hd to 2 NTFS. I would like to avoid asking MS for permission to use XP Setup. They have always given it to me, and as a last resort I can do that again. But I have seen several hints that Disk Management can do what I want. I already have my data backed up and also sorted onto two drives. I do not know how to span those two drives so that each one merges with one of the now empty partitions. In Disk Management, I cannot get past the option just to either create new Empty Space or a New Volume with the now empty partitions. No indication of spanning??? MS Knowledgebase and email consulting tells me to use Fdisk. Am I wrong? Fdisk doesn't exist in NT only in DOS based 95 & 98 systems? MS has those 95/98 instructions linked to their XP instructions but I can't figure it.
