Makes sense. So would he have an option to extend his D: volume into that space? I have extended and shrunk with Vista, but it's been awhile and I have low retention rate the older I get.
I seem to remember something about the extendable space being to the right of the volume you're extending, though. Maybe I had just better leave this alone before I confuse the poor guy more.
It seems that you and I are in the same boat. If it were not for the fact that I have been dealing with this kind of thing myself recently, I wouldn't be able to answer his question. Six months from now, ask me about this, and all that you would probably get from me is a dumb look.
However, since I last posted, it occurred to me that what I said might only be partially right. I think that it is possible to create a partition without formatting it, and it would contain unallocated space, and the partition could be deleted, leaving the same unallocated space free. It seems like I did this long ago, in preparation for installing Linux on a partition. I let Linux do the formatting. However, that is not the case at hand.
