Okay, I see. You can try the Free Partition Wizard bootable version and extend the whole OS partition to 80GB without losing any data you may have there.

Partition Wizard Bootable CD allows user to manage partition directly with partition manager bootable CD.

Windows 7 on a Pentium M?
I have an older laptop with Pentium M 1.6 GHz, 1GB RAM, an Intel graphics card on the mobo. I am having trouble sharing files with a box with 64 bit Windows 7. Someone said it's better to have the same OS. Is it possible to run 32 bit Win 7 on the oldie (of course, with Aero off)? Thanks!
