Hi, Sorry must be brain dead. Your post said move slider to right and screen shot showed moving to left. I chose the left. When I try to do this and apply, a box comes saying drive is being used and to restart computer and wizard with finish process. Nothing happens, must be doing something wrong. Getting a headache. LOL Any idea what I could be doing wrong. So close but so far. See screen shot.Disk partition  shrink & expand-capture.png

I first wrote right but noticed I had written it wrong and corrected it.

It would be better/safer and you may have to use the Partition Wizard Bootable Disk.

It's easy using ImgBurn to burn the ISO to CD.

ImgBurn Free ISO Burning Software


Download the PWBD ISO file to the desktop from this link below.

Partition Wizard Free Bootable CD


Install the ImgBurn program to Windows 7 and use it to burn the PWBD to CD using no greater than a 4x burn speed and with a verify before the program closes.

Tomorrow, when your head feels better and you have had some rest do this and post back here and we'll take it from here.

Hi: Just waiting to hear from you. Anything special I have to know when I boot from the made disk, or is self explanatory? Will wait to start till I hear from you.

Just boot the disk and let it set-up, it doesn't require any input from the user.

Hi, It completed moving C to the left. The 14.5 gb partition is still there to the right of C. It is unallocated. How do I now delete this partition. See screen shot. ThanksDisk partition  shrink & expand-capture.png

In Windows disk management if it is green "Free Space" right click to delete it, then extend the Windows 7 partition into the unallocated space.

Post a snip of Windows 7 disk management.
