Windows 7: Need a new partition

I've been so stupid.
I'll just expand C drive to 60 GB, transfer all my Work data there, delete Work partition and create a new one.

How could I miss that?

Your call, how much data is in the Work partition?

Add that 16GB to the total of your C: drive then, let's say expand it to 80GB in total?

Dude. You have an unhealthy obsession with the size of my C drive. xD

It's a sexy drive, and why are you taking work home with you anyway?

On a serious note, it's just a bit of forward planning, leaving that wiggle room there so things run nice and smooth. Why add complications in the mix for ourselves when there are plenty that will add themselves in of their own accord? So,
  • Expand C: to 80GB
  • Move the contents of Z: to a Work folder placed in C:
  • Delete Z:
  • Create a partition in the first unallocated space
  • Extend newly created partition into the last unallocated space (formerly Z: )
Sound good?

Does this look about right?
I know I won't be able to extend my C drive anymore...

Yeah you will, just delete X: then extend C: into it by 20GB. Then create a partition on what X was and extend it the extra 40GB into that free space.

If you want to of course.

Are you 100% positive that I'll need 80GB in C drive in the next one year?
Then I will do what you ask me to.
