OK that looks good, have you moved everything from the F: to the G: drive?


I'm trying to get you to the place where you can add to the C: but Windows has a specific way of doing things and it will not do it the way you want to.

Now move everything from F: to G: and if you leave anything on F: it will be lost forever.

Have a look at this tutorial at the link below, the Move To method works very well moving data from one drive/partition to another.
Context Menu - Add Copy To Folder and Move To Folder

Post back when you get everything moved off the F: drive.

Hello again Jim.


If you are sure there's no data you need left on F: ...

Right click the F: Logical and click delete, then restart the PC.

Post back here after you have restarted the PC and we'll go on from there.

Now right click that Free Space and delete that, it should then be unallocated space that the C: partition can be extended into; be sure to keep me informed.

OK I don't get why it can't be deleted but we'll go another way, we're very close.


First do a quick (create simple volume) format to the Free Space so it will have a drive letter again and post back.
