Low country friend,
Tried to with the boot version and still could not acoomplish expanding G
This is what it looks like now. Its been very frustrating. Is there anything else you can suggest to combine the free space with the G data partition with the current arrangement of my HD??

Sorry Jim, I'm at a loss; is all the data on G: ok, no issues / loss?

all the data is on G, was trying to combine the 100GB free space with the G partition with no success.
I guess I'll just have to live with the 217GB partition for all my data, and the loss of 100GB of potential space use.
You have been very kind and patient with sharing your expertise and time and for that I am very appreciative.
Thanks again friend!!

Hello.


While there, you can't right click G: and drag the left border all the way to the left and "Apply"?

Friend...that is the crux of the problem
As you can see on the before and after screenshots below the unallocated 101.39GB is moving from the right of G to its left and not combining with the G space to expand the G drive to 319GB which is my objective.
thanks for your help!

I don't know if this will work or not.


Go ahead and move it all to the left and apply and do all the steps so the Free Space will be on the right of G:, restart the PC then see if all the Free Space is to the right in Windows 7 disk management then see if disk management will extend G: into the Free Space.




This whole silly thing makes no sence at all.
