Yeah thanks. I did a bit of searching and found something like this. But with the instructions being brief I found myself a wee bit stumped after the computer made a new folder in 'microgaming' folder. I have quite a few poker clients on my computer and that's one of them. I was asked to letter the drive partition and choose a path.? I didn't feel comfortable with it so I have left it for the time being. I am currently sorting out the GX520 with the 160gb hdd, installing, updating, modifying it with Linux Mint. I'll get back to the 755 maybe later, definitely tomorrow. Maybe I could post screenshots of the partitioning to help you help me. Thanks again.

Got it all sorted quite easily in disk management. The first solution I was trying to follow was way off from what I wanted to do. After deleting the volume of the partition I wanted to expand to, it was all ok after that. Job done.
