Dynentan--
don't accept the Dashlane Password Manager they offer with the installer. It's the 2nd buggiest PW-mger next to LastPass.

That's why I have been using UnChecky, it almost always removes the pre-checked, at the least, it's usually warning, via a pop-up, of the existence of such extras.

Can't help the OP without a screenshot.

One drawback to Partition Wizard free edition is that it does not create boot media.

Aomei Partition assist is a better free version.

Partition Guru free version is also very good, but not so easy for newbies.

Download a copy of Partition Wizard Free Best Free Partition Manager for Windows | MiniTool Partition Wizard Free

Back up your data to be sure, plus your Windows install to be ultra safe

Use Partition wizard to drag and drop the partitions to the exact layout you want, and when happy, press go and sit back and the software will sort everything.

One thing I always advise is if you are creating two partitions on a drive - eg for OS and Data start the OS at the left end and the data from the Right, that way even Windows will be able to extend the C: Partition

well, i have already tried that program, as well as all other programs i could find.. its not letting me change the size of my c drive.. the strange thing is, that it lets me change the size of my d drive, so i can easily add 30 gigabyte more to my d drive.. but not my c drive.. why is that?

Hi Dynentan,

You are making this a lot harder than it needs to be.

A screenshot will give us ALL the information needed in order to be able to give you the CORRECT information to help you, rather than guessing what your disk management looks like and giving you the WRONG information!

As previously posted by another person, I too suspect the unallocated region is to the right of D partition, or, there is something between C partition and the unallocated region. Nothing will change until the correct process is followed as others have previously posted, and, I hope OP has restorable full image backups of the OS partition[s] and of the data partition on external media.
