Specs: Windows XP, Pentium 4 3.07 GB
I kept a Hard Drive form my old computer (Cisnet) and want to use it in my new computer.
It has a recovery partition that I no longer need. How can I get rid of it and used the additional 21 GBs ?

should be able to get fdisk and erase the partition.

Disk Manager in XP should be able to delete the partition and either create a new one or expand the other partition, but if you are recycling the drive to another computer, save anything you need and delete all partitions and create what you really need on that drive. Disk manager should be able to handle that easily.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
