On Vista Premium I have one 250Gb hard drive (sata) split into 3 partitions, Acer C: 77.88Gb, Data D: 111.00Gb, Data+ K: 33.71Gb I wanted to reduce Data D: and add to Data+ K:. In Management / Disk Management, I reduced Data D: and I have now got, Data D:55.77GB, and an Unallocated partition of 55.66Gb. Right click unallocated partition I get the format box, it offers me Maximum disk space in Mbts 5700 Minimum disk space in Mbts 8 Simple volume size in Mbts 5700 Click next Assign the following drive letter L Click next Format the volume Click next, click finish An Error Box, says There is not enough space on the disk to complete this operation. Click OK and I am back at Disk Management. I have tried reducing the simple volume 5700 to 5566 to match the Unallocated partition, but this does not work either. how can i format this partition, and add it to Data+
there was nothing to clck to delete it,so i extended partition data D: ,and i am back where i started from .i have serched the web and cannot find a partitiom manager that works with Vista. i intended to put XP on the new partition, i will now do that, and partition data D: in XP, with partition magic 7 which i have thanks for trying
