Windows 7: Cannot Extend C: Partition

Worst comes to worst I'll just find something to stick in that Partition *looks around and see Ubuntu, Fedora, Windows Vista, Windows XP, OS ... forget that *

Oh and it shouldn't take long, I reinstalled 7 within the last 2 hours so I don't have much on here. =P

Just hate doing clean installs.

It's gotten to the point where I forget which build / OS I'm in sometimes

Then I wonder why I can't find an app I'm sure I installed only to remember it was installed - several builds ago

Lol. I hate doing them but I do them too often, at the rate I go my hard drive will just give up and commit suicide.

Still downloading Paragon.. downloaded the x86 version by mistake and it kept saying 'please use the 64-bit version instead' >.<

Well paragon probably would have worked, if it didn't give me a restriction (downloaded a 30-day trial, not paying for something I'll use once)

Oh well I'll just stick another OS in that spare partition, thanks everyone for trying to help.

That's a shame. You could re-install Windows 7, and while doing so, delete both partitions then create a new 'full size' 1. That way you can change the size of it when you first boot into Windows.

Yeah.. I'll probably do that after this weekend. Would rather play Halo 2 right now. :P

I knew paragon was a trial, but I didn't realised it was crippled. Sorry about that

You will need an third party tool like Acronis Disk Suite or whatever... that would fix your problem .. i'm pretty sure about that.
