That shouldn't be so.


OK then shrink F: by another 200GB, then create a Logical of that 250GB Free Space and then post another snip of disk management for me to see.

Its shrinking the F Drive but not by as much as I want My F File is down to 467GB and free space 118GB. Should I continue shrinking it.??

Will I be able to increase my C Drive by the 50GB or will I have a huge amount of GB space on my C drive that is wasted.

In other words am I going to be able to shrink my C drive to 150 GB when all this shrinkage and space allocation is done??

I thought you said you have 120GB of data that needs moved off the F: Logical, that isn't enough for that now is it.


Shrink F: again, enter this 102400 as the amount when you are presented with the "how much" dialog box.

Thanks for your help. Sorry for the confusion but I originally posted that I'm trying to expand my C partition by 50GB and thought that by shrinking my data partition by 50 GB that would expand my C drive by that amount.

The 50 GB went into a green area called free space.
How do I combine the free space to my C drive to get it to expand by the size in the free space partition????
Thanks for your help!! My C Drive is currently 105 GB and I want it to be expanded to 155GB
How can I get the free space of 118 GB over to my C Drive??
Thanks for your help!

I'm fully aware what you want and I'm showing you the only way to accomplish this, the way you think cannot be done without the use of purchased 3rd party software.

It is my pleasure to help you though.

I take it I start at 5.

In the middle pane, right click on the empty unallocated partition or volume and click on New Simple Volume.
In my case is that the 218 GB free space that was created??

7. Type in how many MB (1 GB = 1024 MB) you want to use from the unallocated partition to create the new partition with, then click on the Next button.
Would that be 51200 for 50GB?

??If you want to use all of the unallocated partition to create the new partition with, then type all of the maximum disk space shown for the unallocated partition. If you do not use all of the maximum disk space, then you can use the left over space from the unallocted partition to create another new partition with.


8. Select an available drive letter that you want to be assigned to the new partition in Computer, then click on the Next button.


9. Type in a volume label name that you want for the new partition, check the Perform a quick format box, and click on the Next button.



If I use 50 GB as mentioned above will I have an additional partition of 168 GB of space? Would I be able to add this to my F Drive?

Please listen ...


right click the Free Space and click New Simple Volume.

create a partition out of ALL the Free Space, remember you need a partition big enough to move all the data on the F: partition to, RIGHT?
