Windows 7: Hard drive with two partitions seeing as two disks!

Hard drive with two partitions seeing as two disks!

Hello There,

My PC has a hard drive (150GB) with two partitions of 75GB each. The OS is running in one partition and data are saved in the second partition. Now I would like to increase the size of the partition with the OS and I can't because Gparted and Acronis see two different disks. Why this is happening? What can I do to solve this problem?
I would appreciate very much your help!

Regards,

Hello Acompay, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Could you post a screenshot of your Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc) window showing all of your HDD's layout? This will give us a better idea of what options you may have.

All - I hope you can help. This issue is driving me nuts. I have a relatively new PC with two hard disks - a smaller 200gb and a larger 1.8TB. The way the machine was configured when I received it was that the smaller disk was designated as the C:. and unsurprisingly has become full. The larger...
