I got two hard drives.
One SATA 80 GB and the other ATA 40 GB drive.
For the Sata one there are six partitions each with 12.7 GB storage.
I want to reorganize this into 4 partitions with about 20 GB storage.
same for the ATA drive.It got five partitions with 7.64 GB storage and I want them to be organized into four partitiuons w/10 gb .
I got partition magic 8 ,so how do I do this?

Just go to Computer Management in Windows, so much more simple.
If that fails you can always format... and use windows xp's pertition maker thing in dos!
But I think to drastically, just use the windows computer management you should be fine!
never thought of that thanks.
I want to increase my mainC drive from 12.7gb to 20 gb ,how do I do it? got about 68 Gb of free space now.

To increase the size of your C: drive you will need to format i think, then remove the extended dos partition, remove the logical dos and start again.
meaning I have to install windiows again and all those tiresome stuff right?

I think it is possible to increase the size of a partition with partition magic without formating it.

You can increase it with Partion Magic but partioning with Windows like that is just to dangerous. Safe thing to do with Windows when partioning it like that is just start fresh. Windows likes to put files every where and because of this makes it dangerous to partion a Windows drive. Unlike Linux where you can partion the thing like crazy and nothing bad will happen. But you can try though. Defrag the thing like crazy and you can try. Like said above, "If it fails you can always format...".
Gota love formatting... Hell, I do it just for fun! ;)
