Ranish partition manager

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?

    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.

    Buddy, try Disk Management.

    Right click the partition and there is an option offered to delete partition.
