Help in Restoring Unallocated Partition

Hi all,

I've an 13MB unallocated partition:



And I'm thinking of recovering it to my D (logical) drive. I've did some Google-ing and found a similar post on this forum here.

However, I can't seem to do it. Whenever I right-click on my D drive, the Extend Volume is always disabled. (Means I can't click on it )

As I'm new to this partitioning business, any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks

Hi.

13 mb? That's 2 .mp3s. Advice is to leave it alone.

Hi,

Thanks for your advice, and I know that's little ... but having that 13MB dangling dosen't looks comfortable to me though.

1 question though ... it's very risky to claim that 13MB to my D drive?

Thanks

If you are new to using partitions, I would follow torrentgs' advice... the risk of borking your system is not worth the space you are trying to reclaim...

+1

That unallocated space is less than one 100th of a percent of your total HD capacity, 0.01%. You really don't need it.

Hello TruthOrDare,

Welcome to 7 Forums.

You could try this. I've never had any problem with it. Partition or Volume - Extend

Hope this helps.
