Hi I'm a newby so not sure yet of how you guys work.

In a fit of stupidity I installed Ubuntu on my laptop, but it just would not see my WiFi router regardless of what I tried so, got rid of it following some online advice, using the bootrec.exe/fixmbr command, which now allows me to boot straight into Vista.

However, if you look at the pic attached you will see I have a huge lump of free space which I can't use for anything.

Is there a way for me to use this space or better still re-combine it with the C: drive again, the options allowed are displayed in the pic, also there is another slice of the drive 5.37gb which I'd also like to be able to use.

Thanks in hopeful anticipation.


System drives as of now.

If S: is the recovery partition, you don't want to change it. You can format the 5.37 GB to NTFS, give it an unused drive letter & use it for data storage. That way if C: fails, there is less of a chance that you will lose your data. Of course, an external backup is still recommended.
