Ranish partition manager

By muppet2992 ·
I'm trying to delete a partition using Ranish Partition Manager. A wonderful program I'm sure, and the price is certain right - but would someone who has successfully used RPM kindly explain how to fully delete a partition and not just change its size/data?

The description of this piece of software says

by OH Smeg In reply to Ranish partition manager

Partition Manager can create, copy, and resize primary and extended partitions

But it doesn't say anything about deleting Partitions just resize & create.

I'm not sure that it will do what you require here.
