    I run out C: drive space and have a lot of space in D:drive.
    I offen get warnning: C:Volumn is low
    I tried Shrink D:Volumn and extend C:Volumn
    To Shrink D:Volumn is OK but the free space cannot be used to increase the
    C: drive space.

    Help needed

    Install a second drive. Partition it as extended, logical. Call it G:
    Copy D: to G:. Rename D: to H: and G: to E:. Verify your new drive E
    apps work. Delete the old drive D: partition. Extend C

  3. That is, I beliece, because the shrink function operates at the end of a
    volume (actually partition). But to increase a volume (partition!) size,
    that space has to be available immediately after it.

    So for you the only option is 3rd party software, like Acronis DiskDirector
    or Easeus PartitionManager
    http://www.partition-tool.com/personal.htm

    I have used Easeus for that, and it has, so far, worked for me. I used to do
    things like that with BootItNG when I was using Win98 and with WinXp up
    until about ½year ago...

    I have 3 partitions already:
    C: Simple Basic NTFS (system,boot,page file,active,crash dump,prymary
    partition)
    D: Simple Basic NTFS (Logical drive)
    Simple basic (EISA Configuration)...this driver has no letter assigned

    Shoul I then after I partition D call it G; copy D: to G:. Then rename
    D: to H: and G: to E:. Then delete D:?
    What would happen with the empty letter drive?
    Do I have to format the new H: drive?

    I have a Lenovo Laptop

    Thanks for your help
