reclaiming hard drive space

Posts: n/a
Yes you are correct. used their software lots back in windows 98 days,

I did not want to clear the drive just remove a back up partition on the
drive, left over from XP. i had left it alone when i had install vista 64 bit
just in case i needed to go back to Xp which i had not, All is well i removed
the little partition, now i have only 3 drives all factory sizes C D E
instead of 4 one being a little 4.8 gig partition
