Adding space to my C Drive.

Hello, i have a 500G HD that partitioned in a 50G C:\ , and a D:\ 450G Data drive, i recently installed W7 on the C:\. i had Data on the D;\. i am trying to use EASEUS Partiton manager, to add space to the C:\ an i seem to have a little trouble in figuring out how to take space from the D:\ , and add it to the C:\.

Any help would be welcomed

Thanks in advance,

Piece of cake with MiniTool Partition Wizard. There's a free Home edition, as well as non-free paid versions with additional functionality.

Also, there is a standalone bootable CD (you download the ISO and burn to CD) or bootable USB. This standalone bootable CD approach is used when you make changes involving the C-partition where the running Windows lives (which can't be made while Windows from C is actually running).

Just use the "move/resize" operation in the GUI... completely intuitive.

(sorry... I know nothing about Easeus)

Yep just like I said in post#2 LOL!!

I did use Easeus to do a long time ago and it was good but then it went south in my mind and the Partition Wizard now has those great other tools for data recovery
Personally my PW sits on my taskbar rather than having to boot the thing although it is a useful option.

Hi,
You might see what this finds as far as wasted space goes,
Use Disk cleanup if more than one user exists on the machine use System clean up as well,

Most people that use the new feature find 30 gig's
