That's 2 partitions. 100MB and 301GB

You just need resize your C: drive using disk management.

Supersprt

You sure he didnt intsll the page file to a different partition? It looks to me like

100 meg system reserved part
80 gig page file (page, active, & probably boot)
221 gig partition marked not active

you're right. Need to delete 221GB partition first.

Or use something like Acronis Disk manager to merge partitions.

no, unfortunately.

If there is no data on it, just delete it. Then you can use Windows 7 to expand the C: partition.

Although I wouldn't really recommend to put everything on the C: drive. It makes it more difficult to do a nice clean install (you can no longer format C: without losing all of your data).

There are many ways to fix this problem. The easiest is probably to make an image of the entire hard disk rather than each individual partition.

Another way is to move the boot manager to C: drive using bcdboot command, make partition C: active, then delete the reserved partition and resize C:

Another way is to find a backup program that doesn't have this silly limitation about free space.

Provided you are not trying to image *to* the system partition - this is a no-no.

Yes Sup3rsprt I try to make the image for thi hold hard drive, but I got this error " Threre is not enough disk space to create the volum shadow copy on storage location. Make sure that for all volume to be backup up, the minimum disk space required for shadow copy creation is available. this applies to both the backup storage destination and volume included in the backup. Minimum requirement for Volumes less than 500 megabytes, the minimum is 50 megabyte of free space. for voulimes more than 500 megabytes, the minimum is 320 megabytes of free space. Recommended at least 1 gigabytes free of disk space on each volumes if volumes size is more than 1 gigabytes (0x80780119)"

I know the problem is System reserve is low under 50mb. I need some how to add more MB in that drive.

I give up at this point.

do you know how we can view system reserve drive see what we got in that partition
