Learn how to use Partition Wizard, it`s simple and works great.

C drive is in disk defrag once again. I rebooted and ran chkdsk, took a while too. Is it because my c drive is bigger now?
Everything seems in order now. Thank you everyone for your help. Is there a thanks button on this site where I can thank everyone?

I am also going to check out the partition wizard thoroughly and learn how to use it. :)

Yes, I would believe it is because C is larger now. Good to know all is sorted. Make sure to backup your C before attempting anything with Partition Wizard. My experience with it is pleasant but you can never know.
