Windows 7: Can't Use Unallocated Space

Can't Use Unallocated Space

I had Ubuntu installed on this partition (when I installed Windows it became unbootable). I've tried having Windows make a drive in the space and formatting it, but it won't let me extend my C: drive onto it. Here's a screenshot of my drive.

I think only a third party partition manager can extend the C drive by including the unallocated space without deleting the data on the C drive. Just my guess because this is how it used to be.

Please try out a third party partition manager boot disk for the job.

Pretty sure wanchoo is 100% correct on this. You'll need a third party partition manager to extend the partition to the left (it'll let you extend to the right, but not to the left). Try Partition Wizard.

Very good recommendation. I hope the OP has considered it.

Download the Partition Wizard ISO and burn it to a blank disc, then boot into it.

Partition Wizard : Use the Bootable CD

Extend C to the left to take up the unallocated space, apply the change, and then boot back into Windows.

Thanks everyone! I used EASEUS Partition Master and it worked perfectly. I made a system image, but everything went smoothly.
