Windows 7: How do I extend my HD partition using redunded 27gb partition

Cheers guys, thanks for your help, right now this all seems a little difficult for me, so I am going to have another look at it tomorrow, often I find things go better after sleeping on it.

I guess I should have loaded windows 7 into the 27gb partition and then merged the 27gb into the C: section, the partitions would have been in the right order - merging left into right.

If it gets too difficult I will have to consider how important my spare 27gb is to me.

Cheers for today

You will have to move the System Reserved to the left first then move the left side of the Windows partition.

If it were me I would mark the Windows 7 partition active and do the 3 separate startup repairs to create the Windows partition as the System partition, then you could recover that space into the C: partition also.

Whenever I've had that problem, I just used Easeus Partition Manager. The free edition works perfectly. It will put the drive behind the others (to the right) and merge it as well. You hit apply, restart, it does its thing, and then you're good to go.

I would copy the bootmgr from the 100MB system partition to C. It will activate C automatically. Then you can get rid of the 100MB partition.

And I meant that for the 27gb partition. I always leave the 100mb system partition.

Thanks for your help guys, I have managed to do it and extended C: into that space, I now have a 699 GB usable space on my 750 GB - which by my reckoning is about right following the 10% rule of thumb.

Cheers for you advice...

It is a 7% rule - decimal to binary.
