Boot PW CD, selecvt 1 for screen res, rightclick on D, select Resize, grab left grey border and slide it to right to make enough room to expand your C Win7 partition to where you want it, click OK.

Now rightclick on C, select Resize, grab right grey border to slide it all the way to right up to the new left border you made for D, OK, Apply all steps.

Thanks Bare Foot Kid for the welcome and answer.

Before going messing abut with my computer, I'm wondering if the spare 34 GB of spare disk space is sufficient for today's programs. If I thought it was then I'd leave well enough alone.

As a matter of information it will be a pure business/home office machine - no games.

Hello again.



During installation you could point the programs/apps to the "data" partition instead of letting them install to their default location, just create a separate folder for each, where they can install to so that they have a defined boundary and so you'll know what's what. I have almost nothing installed to my C: as I too am limited in usable space because of an SSD that I have as my boot drive.
