    I need to remove Linuxcnc installed with Live CD. I installed Linuxcnc on a pc that had windows 7 already installed. I need to reclaim my hard drive space. I have another machine for Linuxcnc now.

    After less than 10 min search, results incl LinuxCNC.
    Q: why subject linux to such a thing? a software requirement? I know certain GIS software requires Windows, so is this something that allows such?
    Curious.

    Thanks arochester, I believe this is the solution but I am not sure which partition is which. I am going to backup critical files and take a chance I'll report back

    arochester, I went through your solution and I didn't lose win 7 but I wasn't able to extent c: with the freed partition that Linuxcnc was on. I did however give a new drive letter and now I have 2 drives instead of one large one which I can deal with.
    Thanks again its people like you that make it easier dealing with these computer problems.
