There are 4 partitions (partition C, E, F and G) on my computer. More than 100 GB space in partition E, F and G, but only 20 GB in C drive which stores a lot of applications. Therefore, I want to increase C drive by taking free space from partition E, F or G. However, how can I increase C drive space in XP without formatting it, sine I don’t want to reinstall operating system?
