I have an XP Home laptop that has 2 NTFS partitions on it that I want to convert to a single NTFS partition. I haven't done this for a while but from what I recall this is as simple as running something like FDISK and deleting the 2 partitions and creating a new single partition. The obvious problem is that you have to reinstall the OS and all applications again - a real painful and time consuming exercise.
So, to the question: I have Windows Home Server backing everything up. I have never tried to do a restore from WHS so don't know how easy or hard it is.
Is it possible to restore the C: drive to the newly partitioned C: drive and then also restore the D: drive to the new partition? Are there any gotchas that I should consider before attempting this?
