Windows 7: remove xp and leave w7

I am afraid there are lots of posts about Acronis Disk Director similar to that.

If you bother to read my earlier post on this thread - you will see I have suggested something there.

My own preference is for the Paragon PM Pro - but the free Partition Wizard I linked to earlier seems to work well enough - and also has a bootable disc.

I've read your post and I'm just tryin to fix that. It allows me to extend the data partition, but not the win7 one. I'm gonna get paragon pm pro now and I'll see what can i do.

Hold on - the PM pro trial is just a demo - it won't let you do much.

How do you mean Partition Wizard won't let you extend your 7 partition?

Post a screenshot of the Disk Management window, like this :

(To get a nice clear view of the window, click the View Tab>Customize>Untick Console Tree and Action Pane)

Was xp the first partition?

Do you now have Unallocated space on the LEFT of the 7 partition?

In this shot - the Unallocated space is the grey bit on the left.

remove xp and leave w7-pw-resize-2009-09-20_141652.jpg

Drag the edge of the partition to the left to incorporate that space - click OK , click Apply.

It may take a while - all the data on the existing partition will be moved to the left.

When extending the System or Boot partition to the left - you are better using the boot disc.

You will alter the partition offset by doing that and will need to correct the bcd entries as a result.

Startup repair on the 7 dvd will do that for you.

Is it your Data partition you wish to increase in size?

To add the Unallocated space to your data partition with Paragon:

Rt click where it says Extended Partition and select Move/Resize.

remove xp and leave w7-par-extended-resize-2009-09-20_182748.jpg

In the new window, drag the edge of the Extended Partition to the LEFT to incorporate the Unallocated space.

remove xp and leave w7-par-extended-resize-2009-09-20_182915.jpg

Click Yes. Click Apply. It may take a while with all that data. Better let it do it's thing without interruption.
