Hello Codie



Please post a snip of Windows disk management not PW, thanks.

In the Windows start menu right click computer and click manage, in the left pane of the "Computer Management" window that opens click disk management and post a snip of that.

WHS I have a question for you. In his D drive he has only 6.2 GB of used space. IF he has or could borrow an external HD ( which he really needs anyway) He could transfer that 6.2GB to the HD, Delete the D partition, extend C thae amt he wants to, use the remainder and allocate it D, and transfer the 6.2 GB back into the new D partition, and be where he wants to be. This could all be done in disk management. Do you see any problems with that approach? And it may be easier on him.

Yeah, that would work too but is more complicated. It should also work as is with Partition Wizard. I have asked BFK to assisit. He is the PW expert. We'll see.

WOW, You guys are extremely helpful . D: is storing my system back up and something else that was there when I first booted the system I think so it must have been windows that put it there. I have plenty of external space:

160GB Freecom drive
500GB Toshiba drive

I have back ups to both external drives aswell as D partition and discs, im due an up-to-date back up come to think of it.

Hello Codie.



You may need to right click, delete the free space first.

Can you right click D: and get the "extend" option to include the free space into D: then you could use PW to resize the left side of D" to create free space that C: can be extended into that free space.

I right clicked free space and clicked delete partition and it says it will become inaccessible if I delete it. Will that harm?

There's nothing there (in free space) so it won't hurt, right!

Wahey, extended back into D so all I have is C and D now like it was when I first bought it, So now I just need to leave D with 40GB and the rest extended onto C.

Now what do I do?

Now look at Step One of this tutorial at the link below to get an out-line of how to resize the left side of D: to create "Unallocated" space that C: can then be expanded into.
