Windows 7: Partitioning unallocated space

27 Jan 2010   #11

Windows Vista


I followed the tutorial so the Unallocated Space has become "New Volume (D)"

Disk 0 has "OS (C)" and "Recovery (E)"

Disk 1 has "New Volume (D)". This appears below Disk 0 in Disk Management.

How to I get rid of New Volume (D) and transfer all of its space over to OS (C)?

Well, once again you can't add the space to the C: partition like you could if the space was on the same hard drive.

Something you might do, if it would help, is to create an empty folder on the C: partition where you want the space. Name the folder and then go to the D: partition (in disk Managment) and instead of using a drive letter, map it to the empty folder.

Then anything you placed in the folder would really be put in the empty space you want to use.

I am assuming you do not want to move the data in the Recovery partition to the other hard drive, or if it is even large enough to make a difference.

Ok, thanks for everyone's support. Is it possible to do this if I were to re-install windows?
