Windows 7: How Do I Move Windows and Programs to a New Partition?

Example; if you think C will grow to max of 50 GB (1.15% of that would be 57,5 GB). But it is better if you play it safer and keep C as 70 GB (max C of 60 GB) -apparently you will decide about this.

If I understood you wrong, if you mean unallocated before and after the partition, then you don't need to leave any space. So D will start rigth at where C finish.

Yeah the tut. over at PW showed entries for adjusting space before and after the partition itself. So these could be set to zero with no potentially troubling implications, if I'm understanding you correctly?

Yes true. Sometimes though it is possible there will be some little space left unallocated (30-40 MB, seen as low as 8) no matter what you do. Leave that as it is if you encounter it.
