Hi Wizzards,

It sounds to me like your new "c" drive is a 120gb partition and your "lost" 40gb is just unallocated space. I bet that paragon created the 120gb partition and dropped all the data into it and ignored the other 40gb. You'll want to expand your 'C' partition. Regardless, your 40gb are not "lost" :-)

Let me know if you need any help with this.

Eduede is probably right.

You should be able to add the 40 GB of unallocated space to your C partition using disk management in Windows 7.

Hi again,

It looks like Brink has already put together a very nice tutorial on how to extend your C partition. Have a look!

Partition or Volume - Extend

Best,

Hello wizzards, welcome to Seven Forums!


In the Windows start menu right click computer and select manage, in the upper left pane click disk management, then post a complete snip/screen-shot of disk management for us to see so we can give you the correct advice; have a look at the tutorial at the link below.
