Windows 7: Adding the unallocated space into my existing drive

Adding the unallocated space into my existing drive

Hi all,

My H.D.D is like this (from left to right), first C: drive then unallocated space (about 40GB) then D: drive and then E: drive. Now I want to add this unallocated space into my E: drive without repartitioning the C or D drives. Is there any solution for this?
My machine is Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit.

Hello khostipi,

The easiest way would be to back up E somewhere else, and delete E in Disk Management. This would combine the E and "Unallocated" as one "Unallocated" space instead that you could then create a new simple volume with them together now.

If you do not have anywhere to back up E to, then you could use the free program MiniTool Partition Wizard to do so.

Extend partition with partition magic software ? MiniTool Partition Wizard.

or

Hope this helps,
Shawn

You're welcome. Sure, you could use MiniTool to either extend or move C into the unallocated space to combine them.
