Hi guys,

I did swap the data cables on the motherboard and now my Windows 7 partition hdd shows disk 0 and the other hdd shows disk 1
Thanks guys!
Maybe now my windows experience index will function again!

Tomorrow I will go on and delete the programs partition etc.
Right now I am to tired!

Thank you all.

Guys, I did manage to delete the "programs" partition within disk management and with partition wizard I did resize the "data" partition into the unallocated space to the left.
Now there is a little unallocated space of 9 MB.
I guess I did n't go far enough to the left with the slider??
This is how it looks like.

This seems to be a glitch with PW 5.2 as it happened to me again today as well. If it bothers you, just boot into PWBD and Resize D all the way to the right.

Hello Greg.


I've had several different issues with that version also, that being one of them.

I wonder if Si included this in his bug report to MiniTool.

The issue seems to be in some cases you cannot zero out one side if you resize to the other side. You have to Apply Resize first then it will allow the other few mb's to be zeroed out in a second operation.

I don't remember this happening in 4.2 although leftover mb space is fairly common in general.

Hi Greg,

I did resize the data partition all the way to the right as you suggested and it worked. It looks good now. I am happy about it.
Now I am gonna work on the other HDD.
I need to figure out how I want to partition it.
I am still having issues with the Windows Experience Index.
It won't rate my computer. Maybe it has someting to do with this HDD still being unallocated???
You have been a great help.
Thank you!
