I agree with moving your data files from C: to F:, but if you still want to make C: bigger (and F: smaller) anyway, there's a simple way to do this in Windows without any reboots and without partition management software:

Assuming that F: is actually empty (there's nothing on F: that you want), delete the partition containing F: in Disk Management. You will then have unallocated space to the right of C: and can easily expand it to whatever size you wish.
After you're done resizing C:, simply create a new partition in the remaining unallocated space. Assign the drive letter F: to the new partition and then format it.

Personally, I would not do that. Instead, I would move personal data from C to F. And then possibly reduce the size of C. Or you could just leave C the same size and not reduce it.

Here is how to use Partition Wizard:

Partition Wizard : Use the Bootable CD

Your hard drive temperature is acceptable.
Hello ignatzatsonic

I did not succeed to transfer data from c: to f: I was looking to transfer the entire Users directory, but for whatever reason, it was not a success

I did load the Partition wizard and reduce the size of my drive f: Now, I got 200GB free, not allocated but I can't add them to drive C:

Is there a magic solution?

Using Easus Partition is much easier for increasing decreasing partition size

Free space need to be contiguous with C: drive I had reduced my F: drive from right to left. That caused my free space to be after f: drive.

To resolved, I reduce my F: drive from left to right. This as created free space between c: drive and F: drive. After, I was able to allocate the space to c: drive

Et Voilà
