Re the second harddrive -
I ended up deleteing the partitions on it (3, including the 100MB system one)
But there is an extended partition left at the end of the drive(just called "Free Space")
If I try delete this I get the message:"This is an extended partition. The partition will become inaccessible If you delete it."
that sounds like I'll lose all that space if I delete? (I googled that without much success)
I unable to resize it (in windows). Is there a windows solution for this - or maybe again a gparted one.
edit/ found some info about it, I dont know what I searched for first time round
edit#2/ just deleted it, it was fine
