Apparently a lot of people find it difficult to use. Most home users wont try this anyway.

I have read that it has some limitations and I have used Partition Magic in the past and it has always been easy and safe to use so that is why I recommend it. Also has a bootable CD or USB setup to use. Just my humble opinion.

No problem! :) I am sure I would have been great on "Mannix" as well........despite the unfortunate lack of an "S" !:)

Hi All,

I only have 10 gig left after I did clean up in my c driver which has windows installed so I have no choice but to move some of the space from partition d - I will follow all the steps above to see weather I will be sucessful.

Thank you for your time replaying,

In order to use Disk Mgmt to extend C you would need to delete D first after moving its data off. If you must resize D from the left Use Partition Wizard not Easeus which can fail on Resizing which PW cannot.

We really need to see the Disk Mgmt drive map screenshot to advise you correctly since you could have a mix of Primary and Logical partitions. Use Snipping Tool in Start menu.

If both partitions are primary, boot Partition Wizard bootable CD, rightclick D to Resize, slide left grey border to right to free up as much space as you want to add to C, Apply.

Next rightclick C to Resize, slide right grey border to right to take up the newly freed space, OK, Apply all steps.

backup your files first and a Win7 Backup image externally.

Partition or Volume - Extend
