Windows 7: Unallocated space problem: Extending C: Drive

12 Mar 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Basic 64 bit.
Unallocated space problem: Extending C: Drive

First of all, I'd like to say hello to everyone, I am new here.
On to the problem-
I am running on a Win 7 Home basic Computer. Everything was fine, until I noticed the extremely spaced partitions, they are as follows:
C: 32 GB
D: 10GB
G: 226 GB
H: 97 GB
I: 97 GB, again.
I was running out of disk space on my C drive, about 200 MB left! I transferred all libraries to G, leaving only user and program files but still, they take up alot of space. I have no games or any other large-space-consuming softwares.
SO I decided to delete My H Drive in Disk Management, And have about 97 GB of unallocated space, BUT it is 2 partitions away from my C drive(*), therefore not allowing me to extend it. I have about 2GB free space on my C drive and I know it cannot go on like this for long. Any help, software recommendations, anything, will help.
(*) Now my drives look like :
SYS | .(OS) C: | .New Vol(G)| .New Vol(I) | .(unallocated) | .HP_Recovery(D)|
100MB | .32.72GB | .226GB | .97.66GB | .97.66GB free | .10.94 GB |
Thank you,

Any decent 3rd party partition management app like parigon disk suite can do that.

I will try it, although I may not be able to buy it currently, and most good partition softwares don't actually give any access to the actual partition management in trial versions.

You can download Partition Wizard to manage all of your partitions if Windows Disk Management won't do it.

It's best to use the "bootable disk" version. Download the ISO and burn in to a blank CD.

It's free and works well.

Mark the post as "solved" - usually the thread starter has a button at the top to do that, its a green tick...... then viewers will know it is finished.
