Can't extend partition volume

Hi guys, is there a third party app that would allow me to extend the volume of my C: partition from the 102 MB Unallocated partition?

Hi !

I'm not completely sure, but I think Windows cannot extend the partition hosting the system.

However, you could try with a boot CD like Gparted, wich should be able to do shuch a thing. It would of course require a CD or DVD.

Best regards,

It's only 100mb so I'd leave it alone since resizing on the boot sector can require running Startup Repair afterwards.

But if you want to annex it then the tool to use is this: How to extend partition easily with Partition Wizard -video help.

So if I try to resize it with Partition Wizard what is the worst that could happen? Or am I better leaving it alone? But I really need the partition

What do you need 100mb for? It's not a partition so doesn't count against maximum four Primary before you must convert one to Logical to add even more.

If you want it then use the PW Extend function from C, have DVD or Repair CD standing by in case you need to run Startup Repair after resizing on the boot sector which happens in about 10% of these cases.

I thought it counted as a primary, silly me. Thanks for clarifying that!

In Disk Management, you can only extend partition using the unallocated behind the partition to be extended.The Extend Volume option will be greyed out when the unallocated space before C drive. In your case, you can use free edition of AOMEI Partition Assistant to add the unallocated space to C drive.
