I apologize if this is in the wrong area or has been asked before, I could not find an answer using search. Alright, my problem is rather simple, i think. I am using the most recent Gparted and booting it off a USB drive. It all works, no problems and stuff. I just kind of need a how to on this; I recently got rid of windows 7 on a dual boot laptop. Though, now my friend would like to just use XP and add what was being used for 7 to it (something like 20gb). Now I formatted the partition that windows 7 was on, but I can not find any simple or clear way to turn in back into unallocated space and then add it to the XP partition. In short, I now just want to go from two paritions back to one. And I have done this before, it was pretty easy to shrink and grow a partition, though its been a few months and whatever I did then, i cannot seem to do so simply anymore. Thank you very much for your help.
