Windows 7: SSD partition split in half - Partition help

I have no idea how you tried to delete hibernation.

Here's how to do it:

At an elevated command prompt, enter this command:

powercfg -h off

Maybe reboot.

That should free up a bunch of space on C that should be enough to let you make a page file on C and delete it from E.

You can turn that System Restore allowance to zero, but it doesn't look like it's using any space right now.

In Disk Cleanup, make sure you select "Clean up system files".

Do as much of the above as needed to generate free space on C.

You may or may not have something cuckoo on C that is eating up space unnecessarily, but worry about that later, after you get rid of E.

Ok your solution before worked when i had freed that space up from deleting hibernation file just as you said with powercfg -h off, after reboot i went to disk management and successfully deleted New Volume E:, it's now unallocated space, How do i connect it back to my SSD ( C: ) Now?

Go to Windows Disk Management.

Select C with the mouse.

At that point, you should be able to do it by either a right click or from menus up at the top of the page. Just try right click. Look for "extend volume" or something like that when you right click.

It will show you some number that is the maximum it can expand. Accept the maximum.

You should end up with a larger C and NO unallocated space.

If you need hibernation, you can then turn it back on.

Or you can readjust page file if necessary.

The C: Drive is now 55.90GB NTFS , and no more other drive, looks like its one drive now.

Can i just keep Hibernation off? Will it effect anything for the future?

By the way, thank you for your help, it's a blessing we have people like you on the internet willing to help people who are completely clueless, thank you for your time, would love to pay you if you have paypal haha :)

You can research what hibernation is and make a decision.

I don't use it and don't miss it. It's completely optional.

I think it's mostly used by laptop owners as a state short of complete shutdown.

Make note of how much free space you have on 12/9/15 and track it.

If it starts going up without a known reason, you may have something else going on---a virus, a runaway program, something going on in the background, etc.

Windows will grow a bit over time--even if you don't install more applications. Perhaps by 3 to 5 GB per year. This is due to the Windows Update process, which I assume you are aware of.

System Restore occasionally will go goofy and start taking up unusual amounts of space, but it doesn't appear to be a problem in your case. It's generally worthwhile and I keep mine set to about 6 GB, so it never uses more than that.

Good luck.
