Hi broeckie27. Simply delete the partition that you created. After that, right click on the remaining partition and "extend volume ".

Post a screen shot of Windows Disk Management so we can see what is going on with your partitions.

I hope you do NOT have "dynamic" disks.

Hi all, it is a question. I shrinked my hard drive from 700 to 500GB, thinking that I will see the 200 in a seperate drive, that I will format and become official drive. BUTTT I DON'T know where the 200 went. I really want it as a back up drive, and if not possoble, HOW do i undo the shrink and get back my original 700 gb. Thanks . oh, how do I can actually put this for everyone to see , so more people might see it rather than being a reply ????

you can post a new thread, you need to create a partition from the 200GB you shrunk then format it, if you wanna merge it back the press extend partition in disk management.
