Issue deleting old system partition

:/
So yeah... I am having issues deleting stuff from my old windows partition
It contains program files, and windows folder, which I seem to be unable to delete, even after taking ownership of them


The end result I want, is to get rid of C:/, and have E:/ fill up the entire drive




any ideas how to get C: and E: together as one partition?

open disk managemanet and right clik on E: an the click on delete volume it should look like the unlocated partion between C: and E: now after you delete it. next right click on drive c: and the clik on extend volume and just hit ok. and now c: and e: should now be merge together!

let me know if it helps or not.

Yeah, I would also delete C to get unallocated space (after you saved all "valuables" from it). But for adding the unallocated space to E you need this program - because Disk Management cannot deal with free space to the left of E.

Disk management should be able to do all of that. What are you trying to do again?

Provided you move E all the way to the left first.
