Hello Yadielfeliciano,

Could you post back a screenshot of your Disk Management to help us see how your drives are layed out? This will help determine what you may be able to do.

Thank you,

You have 1 part with data and 1 empty, right? if thats the case then you can use acronis. have acronis delete the empty one, then modify the size of the one with data (and os). As with all proceedures like this backup your data first if you can.

Hope this helps

Look at this, this happened when I was making a partition with ubuntu when later I discovered that you could make one in the installer, and well... this is a horrible mess..

OK so you want to expand C, right? and you want to remove f, correct?

Well it looks like a mess, you also have 1.5 gigs that is not being used and some with drive letters and some without.

Dont worry this is a piece of cake. IF you dont need either F:, or the 28gig partiton delete them. either in disk management or acronis (i use acronis). thats step one. then using acronis expand the C: partition to use 100% of the empty space. It will require you to reboot at least once. Its easier than you think

And what about the 1.5 gigs, do you need that or not, because it is unallocated, you have to delete all but your C: and then reclaim it back on C:, it may sound hard but it is easy to do, just read what you are about to do good, if Ken makes some screen shots to help or I will.
