New to the forums and need some help here as I'm lost. I just got my new laptop and noticed that the C drive (O/S) was getting full and wanted to add more space. I deleted the recovery partition of 25GB so I could extend my C partition.
However, I do not have the option to expand my C drive, see the print screen link below:
I also tried using minitool partition wizard which looked to be successful but upon reboot I got an error.
I recently formatted my laptop and re-partitioned it. I ended up making some Unallocated Space on the left of all the partitions. Here's a screenshot of the Disk Management window - I want to extend [Backup F:] with whole of the unallocated space. How can I do it?
My mom got her laptop from Best Buy, and it came with Geek Squad optimization. They made it so the C: drive is around 58GB, and the D: is the other GBs which add up to 500GB. She is practically out of room on her C: and the computer is almost unusable. I already deleted the D: partition, but the partition manager in Windows 7 won't let me extend the partition to fill up all of the space. The option to extend it is just grayed out.
I read up a bit on this on other threads but none of them are exactly specific to my issue.I need to expand my C partition by utilizing the free unallocated space on disk D (a separate disk) that I just made by deleting the only partition on there.I guess this is not possible through windows disk management tools but I didn't want to start downloading any 3rd party software for this before I got some guidance from here. lease take a look at the following screen and let me know if using the 238.38GB of unused (unallocated space) I can extend the C partition without having to delete that partition, having to backup the files on it or making images. I already backed up everything I had on the D partition and then went ahead and deleted it through the computer management tool.
i have what I consider a major problem with my desktop pc, the usuall thing happened switched mine off last night, today will not boot up, I have tried the usual repairs, tried to use the system held repair, unable to get the pc to load, I have tried to complete a new install but every one of my 3 hard drives comes up with the same thing "unable to install not enough space on chosen drive", I am completely stumped.
I want to use that 4.88 GB and allocate it into any of the 4 drives... but the extend volume option is grey and i cannot select it.. since the unallocated space is at the right of all drives i should be able to use it, right?
which I am going to purchase. Sewell InjectIR, IR over HDMI for Remote Controls - SW-29660, $44.95. This is perfect because I am running a length of 40 hdmi cable. Now I need arecommendation for a remote for windows 7 media center control. My main goal, is to control movies to my bedroom, from my newly built htpc. I have been watching flicks on vlc player, so I need to take control of my pc, as if i were in front of it. So without theheadache/worry over an RF type remote, what is it that I need to accomplish what I am after? Now that I'll be able to extend the IR signal, reliably...would this workAmazon.com:Windows 7 Vista XP Media Center MCE PC Remote Control and Infrared Receiver for Home, Premium and Ultimate Edition: Electronics
im having this prob where a total of 40GB of space out of 160Gb in my HD cant be formatted. I were using Windows Vista before upgrading it into Win 7....
I had 3 partitions ( c:, d:, & N... All 3 of it works perfectly. The only problem im facing here is with this 40GB of free space which i couldn't Format in anyway.. it keeps on bugging me with this warning of "not enough space to complete operation" thingy...
Here is an image of it, where the green colored free space (39.06Gb)... cant be formatted.
I tried Formatting it while the Windows 7 installation process, yet, i still couldn't do anything.
I bought a 3TB hard drive for my gf and did a fresh install of Windows 7. When I was creating the first partition the Win7 install auto created two more volumes, both labeled as Unalloated. I thought nothing of it as I figured I would be able to merge/create my second partion with the remaining space once Windows was up and running. However, to my dimay I can not create a partition on one of those random Unallocated volumes. I've tried to delete all partition but the one that my OS is running on and I've tried to create two then merger but when I right-click on the second (first one works) volume the option t create a simple volume is greyed out.
I installed Ubuntu on my computer a few months ago and created another partition for it on my 1TB hard drive. I didn't really care for Ubuntu so I decided to delete the partition it was on. That might have been a mistake. Well, now there's 87.68GB of free space on my hard disk that I can't use and I don't know how to add it back to my c: partition.
There was another post about this a couple years ago, but I don't understand the instructions and am not actually sure if it worked. Can someone explain how to do this, please? I'm not completely computer illiterate, but I'm not familiar with partitioning disks. It was just the one time with Ubuntu.

My C drive is full and started to make computer run lil bit slow.my question is if i shrink my d drive which has about 70g free can i just extend the c drive to take the un-partitioned space? I dont see why not but seen as i was on here i said id ask, i dont want to have a small usless volume if i can not add it to the c drive.
also it is 1024mb in a gig init?? im goin to add 50g to my c drive which would be 51200mb!
I have windows 7 home basic system, i hav 76% i.e. around 350GB free space in my c drive. But when i go for partition and click on shrink volume it shows only 40mb available.Before 1day it was showing 0 space available.
I have a Toshiba Satellite Laptop computer with Windows 7 and a 500GB hard drive.My hard drive is getting full. When I looked at the space left, I found out that my C drive and D drive are allocated the same amount of space (232 GB each).Can I allocate more space to the C drive without causing any issues? If so, what would be the proper amount to leave with the D drive.
i have recently ran out room on my D drive. its 122gb and i can only account for around 11gb.this drive has the 'windows backup' located in it. im thinking that these flies are using all my space (or hidden files)is there any way 2 free up space and/or get rid of the backups?
I have a recent Win764 build less than 6 months old, seems to have a virus or something that is making the hard drive space dissapear. The accual contents are 36GB out of 300GB. The computer will display that there is only 3.75GB left out of 300GB. I ran windirstat and tree and it gives me the correct allocation of data. The data matches what is supposed to be on this drive, there is no random file that is taking up 275GB. Leads me to believe that its a Virus, and cannot find to much on the subject
1. I have a 500 gb HD C and using a empty 2 TB external Drive, it gets to a point (different each time) stops and says nt enough space.
2. This stopping of backking up is annoying in itself. So I hit to restart back up and instead of it continuing whare it left of from the other BU it begins a whole new Bakup. This Time I have 2003 zipped files while the last 2 times I had like 316 on one and 988 on another.
Is this just win 7 and its back ups? I have 2 other programs I can use Nero back up and Mameo, should I reformat disk and try one o them?
About 1 week from today, I installed my copy of Windows 7. I had 92.7 GB free of 123 GB by the end of the day after downloading/installing all of the programs I needed. (I'm ocd so I keep track of how much space I have in my (C) Drive after every download/install.So the next morning I turn my laptop on. What?! I suddenly have 90.8 GB free of 123 GB on my (C) Drive?!Now I'm sitting here a week later down to 88.9 GB free of 123 GB in my (C) Drive.Besides downloading/installing the things I needed, I also did Disk Cleanups where I got rid of of my Windows.old files (XP and Vista). I've also deleted all of my System Restore and Shadow Copies in the More Options tab. Could that be the reason why?
This may be an old one but couldn't find any ready answers to fix it. I am running out of disk space on my OS drive and having run TreeSize, I discovered that the WinSxS folder is taking up over 11.5 GB.
C drive is showing "space free 1.49GB of 19.5GB" whereas when I'm selecting all the files inside C drive its showing 16.7GB on disk. So C drive has 2.8GB free, But showing only 1.47GB free. Where is the space allocated?
i seriously cannot understand why the c drive space keeps on decreasing, i have a windows 7 64 bit installed on my laptop and the only major software package installed on it is the adobe cs5 master collection, i use ccleaner and disk clean up regularly and also clean the adobe cache files, but still the space is decreasing just a few weeks back the disk had 77 gb of free space and now its down to 70 -my surfing is a lot and i use any video converter and Internet downloader as well due to my multimedia studies, i cannot understand why is the space decreasing so despite maintenance can anyone help me please
I have a 3ghz Phemon, 8gb ram and a 60gb SSD drive.
After installing Win 7 x64 my install was a bloated 20gb. This includes 8gb in the c:windows emp folder that I can't delete. After installing a few apps and games, I have 12gb free. I cannot account for 15gb of "missing space"
I'm obviously brand new to the forums so I hope this is the right place for this. I should start with my type of drive; I have a 120gb Cherryville SSD from Intel serving as my C: Drive. Just the other night I had approximately 43GB left in my C: Drive (note this is incredibly low as well, but I was content). Last night I checked again and saw that I was down to 25! I performed a disk defrag and that actually decreased my storage to 23! I am absolutely puzzled as to the cause of this.
The only thing I have done between the time that I had over 40 and last night was update my visual BIOS (having nothing to do with my C: Drive at all) and download a simple XML update for Microsoft Expressions (which was measured in kilobytes). Granted I have done my fair share of updating .net framework and various other updates, but all of my major programs are on my hard drive, not my SSD. To put this into visual perspective, I'd like to share a photo showing around 25GB of space taken that is absolutely nowhere to be found, I find it hard to believe that Windows and a few programs can take up nearly 90GB of storage.
