You may be able to do it with Windows built in tools---or maybe not.

We need to see a picture of your Windows Disk Management, showing your partition layout.

I assume you want to expand C.

There are several approaches you could take.

If it were me, I would:

Move whatever is on E and F to H.

Then delete E and F, using Windows Disk Management.

Then resize C to whatever size you want it to be, using Windows Disk Management.

Then recreate E and F from whatever space remains, using Windows Disk Management.


Then move the stuff on H back to the new E and F.

But I'd wait to hear what others have to say. That is just how I would approach it.

Actually, I would probably not even recreate E and F. I'd probably just create one big C drive and then use a folder structure on C to contain whatever is now on E and F. Or maybe I would create E, but not F. But that's your choice entirely. I don't like a bunch of partitions on a drive.

Moving files to H: could be a bit difficult, seeing as it's only a 241MB drive...

The simplest way would be to use something like EASEUS Partition Master from within Windows - no need for a boot CD - and resize E: and/or F: while moving them to the right at the same time. Then just expand C: and be done with it.
