If onekey is working, start it up and select "Recover Drive space".

It onekey is not working, then you can use Aomei. In Aomei main window Simply rt click the Lenovo partion and select delete. Then APPLY.

Then rt click C and select Resize, drag it all the way to the right. Then APPLY.

Bootable media should not be needed for the above.


However, in case you want it in the future, you can borrow my boot media - it has explorer, networking, browser, audio, disk management,windows recovery options etc. It also includes Aomei partition assistant and Aomei Backupper.

@Karenetson, since you want to make use of the unallocated 113 GB space to increase C partition, you can directly merge it to C using aomei partition assistant. Disk Management can't help you extend C with the unallocated space since the unallocated space is not very after C here. And, just as SIW2 said, by adding unallocated to C, your disk partitions layout will changed, and OKR will not recognize the recovery partition. Thus, why not just delete it and the 8 GB partition and merge them to C? Anyhow, you still have the old 128 GB disk as a backup.
PS: You can using Lenovo OneKey Recovery to create a recovery partition again after extending C if you are still worry about your system.

THANKS!! EVERYBODY who contributed in in such a fast way! I used Aomei as suggested and the result is like I wanted. I keep the old SSD for potential future restore.

It might be better to do this operation booting to minitool cd/ flash media instead of inside windows though so security... does not disrupt the operation
Create a MiniTool Partition Wizard Bootable 9.1 boot USB - YouTube
I like Partition Wizard as well and it can do the required operations. Unfortunately your video link is in a non English language and my version 9.1 no longer supports building a bootable iso. It used to support the iso build and I have it saved. The software appears to be Canadian while AOMEI is Chinese.

The lowest cost paid version is quite reasonably priced but it is for one PC. If I thought the bootable CD was able to be used on other PCs then I'd pay the money. Does anyone know if the paid bootable CD is usable on multiple PCs?.

mjf,

I made a batch file that will create pe and automatically include the popular programs you have installed

pe764upd.zip

The pe it creates will be usable on any pc that can boot win7pe.
