Then try the conversion as it may prompt to you delete. If not delete R in Disk Mgmt then reboot PW CD to Convert.

Once its all done can I extend the volume of my C: drive back to what is originally was?

Thanks gregrocker! You have helped me with 2 problems so far. But for some reason I just got an extra 40 MB of unallocated space that wasn't there before.

Did you extend C with Disk Mgmt? Try again.

PW was known to do this sometimes in the older versions. Disk Mgmt should close the gap.

I extended it, but it only prompted me to extend it by exactly how much I had on X:

It should offer you all of the available space, so try Extending C again all that it offers.

If this fails you can install the latest Partition Wizard version to Resize C all the way over.

When I right click on C: drive I only get the option to shrink the drive, not extend.
