Moving some partition drive space to another

  VNAM75 22:17 19 Dec 2008

My C drive where xp and program files are installed has 11gb free, and my Data drive (d) has 80gb. I want to take 10gb off d and put it into c


c drive: 21gb
d drive: 70gb

Is it possible to do this within windows or do I need additinal software? I don't want to reformat the hard drive.

You will need a third party prog for this

the prog in the link is free...

Having said that i do not see the point in what you want to do.
The sensible option is to keep data to an absolute minimum on C:\ so when you need to format and install backup it will be quick and simple.

If you need more space why not buy an external HDD...

Thanks MAT ALAN, I always install programs to the c drive and data to d. I just wanted to increase the spare capacity in c (not use it up) because there's a lot of space on d.

Leave the C: drive as it is. You need the D: for storing data etc, which takes up the most space on most our PCs, unless you need to install new applictions, and/or you are running out of space on the C: David
