Okay, so I was jacking around on my computer under "computer management," specifically under "disk management," and I saw that I could create an extra partition from my current one. So I proceeded to create an extra partition the size of 1GB, just to make sure I didn't blow my whole drive away. Anyway, I can use the extra partition as I should be able to, but a 1GB partition isn't very useful...at all. So I want to know if I can add that 1GB partition back to my original partition, especially since I only have a 63 GB hard drive. Right now I have it basically removed with no drive letter assigned and I've set it so it doesn't show under "My Computer." Also...everytime I start up my computer it says it has located new hardware (my extra 1GB partition) and that it failed to properly install the drive. I believe this is just because I've removed the drive letter and hidden the drive...but it's still annoying. Anyway I want to know if I can re-add that 1GB back to my original partition, and if I can't, how I can get my computer to stop displaying the "Found New Hardware" window at start-up. Thanks for the help, sorry for the über long thread!
