I’m trying to sort out an old Acer laptop for a family member, Windows Vista basic with a small 70Gb hard drive that is split into two equal partitions with the C part very nearly full, using the Disk Management utility I’ve been able to shrink the D partition down to 16Gb and now have 16Gb unallocated. How can I allocate the 16Gb to the C drive to make it bigger, the extend volume option is greyed out …alB
Sorry I missed the part of your post where you mentioned " extend volume " is greyed out.Are you Xp or Vista by the way? I have found this, have not used it myself so cannot comment.Extend. Also the unallocated space must be to the right to use Extend Volume
gengiscant/BRYNIT, worked a treat, thanks very much for your input, although I don't know how long a 50gb partition will last before that's full too!! I might suggest getting an external drive to use as well. Thanks again chaps, great advice as always ...alB
