Windows 7: How do I increase available shrink space on C?

Ah, finally got it. Used "Create+" in PWizard to create logical drives in the unallocated space, then booted to Windows and let it figure out drive letters, then reassigned them to be in order. Thank you to everyone, this is solved!

Hello mate.

Yes it does from Step 1 of Method One of the tutorial.


Note   Note
Partition / Extended : Logical Drives

1) Open an elevated command prompt, in the command window that opens type diskpart and hit the <enter> key, all commands are followed by <enter>.

Here are the commands, click the images below to see how they are implemented.
list disk

select disk # (# = target disk number)

create partition extended

exit (2 times to close the command window)
If you need to create a specific size Extended partition, use this command.
create partition extended size=61440 <- 60GB
It has to be entered as MB and 1024MB = 1GB so 1024x60 = 61440

You can create any size you need using the formula above.

Glad to hear you got it organized the way you want. If you'll post back another screenshot showing Disk Mgmt drive map and all listings we can look it over. Use Snipping Tool in Start Menu, attach using paper clip in reply box.
