Windows 7: Partition or Volume - Extend

Is it the Move/Resize Partition feature that I use Shawn? (shown below) I thought it might be the Merge Partition but that gave me an error message that that feature wasn't available in this version. Thanks, Jeff

Move/Resize may be able to do it since Merge is not available.

Yes merge is a feature in the paid version. You will need to drag the handle all the way to the the left and apply.
Also I suggest you run check file system (over on the left).

The Move/Resize seems to have done the trick. There is a good video tutorial on the Partition Wizzard webiste that I suggest everyone watch who is thinking of doing this. I found it very helpful as there is a right way and a wrong way to do it.

As suggested, I also ran the check file system on both my drives. I have since restarted my computer and everything appears to be working as desired. Thank you both for your help and your quick replies.

Hi, using this method can I extend two partitions outside of one partition. In other words

Partition A
Partition B
Partition C

I want to take space from Partition B which has the extra space and give some to Partition A & C is this possible without loosing any data using the method in this tutorial? Yes, it is literally in that order on my PC

Hello Jerome,

Yes, but you will need to use a free program like Partition Wizard Home Edition to be able to though. Disk Management is to basic for that, and will not be able to do it.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Yes, without having to reboot and loosing data.

That free progam is just one that I liked. If you have another disk management type program that you prefer, then it'll probably work just as well.

Partition Wizard is popular with many forum members (inc. me).
Like any program it may fail for a range of reasons. I suggest:
1) Never use it unless you have a full backup or if you have nothing to lose if it fails.
2) In the past the Bootable version of the same product has been more robust for major partition operations since the Windows OS is out of the way. Version 6 mini Tool may have improved here.
