I would like to resize my C/: partition as it is running out of space. I have Partition Magic 8, which I used to split this HDD into two partitions C (13 gig) & D (180gig) when I first set up this computer.
I would now like to increase the size of the C partition to 20gig. I have emptied the D Partition so there is plenty of space to increase C.
I have followed the wizard's instructions and tried to apply the changes, I then get a message that "no partition is active do I want to continue"?
According to the partition map, the C/: partition is active. It is listed as follows.
Partition (Local Disk C). File system (NTFS). Size Mb(13,774.5). Used MB(11309.6). Unused. MB(2464.9). Status (Active). Pri/Log (Primary)
So it is listed as Active, but the warning says "no partition is active do I want to continue"?
Perhaps I should have said that the C drive ony has the Os and prog files, all my personal files are on another seperate HDD. I have 4 HDDs in this machine, 10 partitions in all, plus I have just bought an external HDD to make space for more video capture files.
I am really running out of space if I need to install video or other software on the C partition.
Not sure why it is telling you there is no active partition, i know you can only have one per disc, have you tried going through the resize operation again. I have PM8 and i have looked through the troubleshoot files and at the moment cannot find anything relavent.........
