    Doesn't really make a difference; Windows handles those partitions specially. Boot Linux and you can do what you want with them.

    Why go the Linux route when you can use a free app like EaseUS? BTW, the only Linux app that I use is Clonezilla on a bootable CD, and that only for moving things around on some of my older systems. Also, I don't follow why you say "Windows handles those partitions specially". How so and why?

    I don't know the specifics, but when Windows refuses to do something I want it to do, I've learned over time that I can spend hours trying to force Windows to violate its own rules, or I can boot Linux and get it done in 5 minutes. If EaseUS worked for you, that's fine. I'd never heard of that program.

    What, it doesn't have the "run as WinXP" compatibility? That's one of the nice things about Win7 Pro.
