okay i will explain, so i made one partition and that has 40gb of space and i installed ubuntu on that, then i reinstalled my windows, formatted the 40gb partition, but now i want to add that 40 gb to my C drive, but i tried several ways to get that 40gb back, now i got Paragon partition manager but that says that i have no partitions to merge, but when i go into (Control panel -> System and Security -> Administrative tools -> Computer management -> Storage - > Disk management, and there it shows the things like unallocated space is black color, green color is free space) the Disk management, then it shows me that i have two partitions, okay, its not working i thought so i inserted the Windows 7 CD and ran the setup, then i deleted the partition from there and formatted as well, THEN on the CD setup wizard it said the 40gb is unallocated space, then i entered into my username and opened again the disk management and it still says that its free space not unallocated, what the hell should i do?

I'm lost. You created a 40 gig hdd and installed Ubuntu on it. OK, Then you reinstalled XP, was that on the same partition? Then you formatted it. Formatted what, the 40 gig partition you just installed Ubuntu on, and if it wasn't formatted, how did you install an os on it. Slow down and try to explain it better, How big is the total hard drive and what is on the partitions now? And how many partitions are there listed and what type? Sorry, but I'm confused.

I had two partitions, and one had windows 7 and one had UBUNTU, and i formatted and deleted the UBUNTU partition which was limited to 40 gb, now there is 40gb left space and i want to add that 40gb to the Windows 7 partition, thats my question how can i do that

my hard drive is actually 232gb TOTAL MAX ABSOLUTE

right now there are literally nothing on the UBUNTU (partitions 2) partition, but on the Windows 7 which is partition 1 there is COD4 Revo uninstaller, well im not gonna list all the stuff i have, i dont have many programs on the partition 1 since its been reinstalled 4 - 5 hours ago.

I've used gparted to do what you are attempting but, it should have been done before you reinstalled windows. Why? because you may hose your windows install, so back up any data you don't want to lose.You could just format the partition as ntfs, then windows can use it.

You shouldn't really have all your hdd space on 1 partition. I would have the C partition about 30 gigs, enough for the os and programs related to the os. Then you should actually increase the size of the 40 gig partition and install your programs etc on that. makes error checking and defrag etc much faster on a 30 gig partition than a 250.

By the way you should not double post, it causes confusion.

There is a difference between free space and unallocated space.

To extend your partition you need to have unallocated space.

The reason you have free space is that you probably have an extended partition in which you originally had a logical drive.

You have deleted the logical drive creating free space in the extended partition.

To turn that free space into unallocated space you need to delete the extended partition first.
You should be able to do this in disk management.
