Some of the older fellows hereabouts may remember helping me get my new (old) hard disk up & running, via installing ubuntu. Many thanks to all. It worked a treat. For various reasons, tho', I'm back on Windows XP. The only problem is that in the course of the linux detour, I created a new partition on my hard drive, and now I can't seem to get rid of it. It just sits there holding onto a third of my very limited disk space, resisting all boarders. Disk management shows it looking like this (it's the 13.09 bit): And when I followed the instructions to delete it using command line, I ended up looking at this: Any gurus out there have any ideas?
