External hard drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm cant find a better place to post this but....
    hoping to get advice.

    I use Win XP SP2.  I have a 120gb external  HD that was formatted into 3 partitions about 40gb each.  I want to get it back to a single 120gb drive. In Windows disk management the disk shows up as 1 healthy partiton and 2 healthy logical drives each roughly 40gb.   If I delete the 2 logical drives will that 80 gb of space become available?  If so, how do I combine it with the first 40 gb partition to get to a single 120gb drive?

    Can disk management do this without having to use fdisk?  I dont need any data on any of the partitions

    Thanks for any help.

  • Hey,

    I got it to work.

    Deleted the logical drives and partition and it left 120gb unallocated space.

    I formatted the drive and got a 120gb drive back.
