    Hi all,
    A friend of mine bought a pc from time and wants to get rid of the restore
    partition and gain some extra space.
    How can this be done.

    if time comps are anything similar to medion/compaq etc---do not remove this
    partition
    it contains all the diagnostic tools and drivers and the machine expects the
    partition to be there
    i tried a similar thing with a medion machine(loose all the supplied stuff
    and install a real copy of windows)---machine will not play unless it has
    that small partition

    the amount of space you are talking about is seriously small in real
    terms(from memory around 5mb i think)---best solution is go get another
    cheap harddrive to boost the storage
