I have just reformatted my backup laptop, which uses windows XP. I had previously set it up to have two partitions. Now, my primary use of it requires one large partition. After reformatting and looking in Control Panel>Administrative Tools >Computer Management, I see that it has a Disc 0 with 37.24 GB. This has a C: with 15.77GB (NTFS Healthy) and 21.47 unallocated. These are the dimensions of the former partitions. I seem to be unable to allocate the extra space for use as the C: drive. The right click options on the C: are Open, Explore, Change Drive Letter and Paths, Properties, and Help. The gray options that are unavailable are Mark Partition as Active, Format, and Delete Partition. The right click options on the unallocated space are New Partition, Properties and Help. I am pretty sure somehow I want allocate the unallocated space to the C: drive, but do not know how. What should I do?
