Windows 7: repartition single drive

30 Dec 2013   #1

repartition single drive

My single drive is partitioned into 2 drives: C:\, boot, 120 GB total, 1.6 GB free..... E:365 GB total, 130 GB free. I want to repartition so that C:\ is 30 GB larger, and E:\ is 30 GB smaller. I can shrink E: and make unallocated space and a new empty drive, but I could not enable C: to add that unallocated space. C: became "locked' with an attempt to do so.
Is there a relatively simple way to do this?

Found it! This was the thread, I was referring to in the topic I posted. As the OP didn't seem to provide results/feedback, I just want to let people know this method worked flawlessly for me. :)
