Default Need help with making more space on a partition.

Ok, i did windows again for a reason I would rather not explain - i messed up all my registry but anyway, I accidentially only made the main partition 2GB and this aint enough room for programs nd stuff. Can I add more space to it or use a differnet partition for the windows folders (program files etc etc) please help

J

u don't have to install all of the programs to the program files. I don't think there is any difference if u put it to the other partition.

Partition magic is one program used to manage partitions, but u need to pay for it. There was also some application in windows itself but I don't know if it's able to resize the partitions.

Paragon's Partition Manager Pro is a good, easy program to use, but you only get a limited trial. Still, if it's just a one-off operation, then that's fine.
