Mate you should use the Partition Wizard as mentioned by jumanji MiniTool Free Partition Manager for Window 8/7/vista/xp | Partition Wizard Home Edition and he will soon be on to it I am sure.

I don't need my fat32 partition much anymore. I'm tempted to just delete it. Can i format the fat32 partition, and just expand the main ntfs drive?

Of course this is in the hope that nzs time warp will make the drive magically appear...
Yes, my dear friend, you used the old and dead PowerQuest Partition Magic 8.(Upto Windows XP, I was using that but when I installed Windows 7 and used it on it it said the partitions were not correct and it will repair it and by doing that repair it only mucked it up. Then only I woke up and realised it can't be used on Windows 7 and discarded it. I still have the BART PE disks I created from the twin floppy images with other programs .)

On what computer you said you were able to access that partition? XP?

Whatever, if you do not have any important data on that partition, Install and run MiniTools Partition Wizard Home edition v8.1.1, Free download Magic Partition Manager Software, partition magic alternative, free partition magic, partition magic Windows 7 and server partition software - Partition Wizard Online ,delete both the partitions, create new volumes as you like and format it to NTFS.

Enjoy Newzealand What are you listening to? [10]
