Windows 7: extending partition?

06 Sep 2010   #41


It ended up smaller than 11.08gb, showing only 2% free space. If you get any low space warnings on that partition, you might want to enlarge it a bit. Or delete it before you pull your hair out, since you have the Recovery Disks.

You may also have problems in the future with F data partition being marked Active. Only the System partition should be marked Active. If F is only a data partition, then I'd boot PW CD to Modify>Set Inactive.
