    How do I Change OS Partition size


    Hi,

    I have installed Windows 7 on a new SSD.
    But the OS Partition size is too small. ( As shown in attachment )
    I have lots of free space on an adjacent partition as shown.
    How do I take some space from there and make OS Partition bigger.
    I am not an expert so I will appreciate as much detailed instruction as possible.

    Thank You

    If I do that then C: becomes Huge partition by itself taking off the whole drive.. Then how do I make it to the size I want ?

    Here are two images.
    My OS partition is 160GB.
    I want to add 40GB to it.
    What should I do in Image-2 ?

    Thank You

    Where it says "Select the amount of space in MB " it shows 311937 which is the available 304.63gb shown in MB (binary) .

    So you change that to amount to 40960 you want to add. Then click next.

    40 GB = 40960 MB (in binary) .
