Now open the program and right click the new drive you just created and click delete, then I think it's at the top left now click apply then yes to any conformation dialog boxes, it'll only take seconds.


be sure not to do the G: where all the data you just moved that's why the "new" drive needed a letter so you could tell them apart without issue.

Well done, now you can extend C: into that space, use Windows 7 disk management for that.


one thing though, be sure to add enough so you don't have to go through all this again when you run out of room on C: again!

I see why it won't extend the C:, the F: is still there.


Type/paste these one at a time in that same command window followed by <enter>
select volume 4 you should get "volume 4 selected"

delete volume override confirmation

select volume 3 confirmation

extend size=98300 confirmation

exit twice to close the command window

I'm off for the night but please post back with the results as soon as you know.
