    after shrinking c: drive i was surprised to find it created another drive
    rather than increasing my d: drive, nethertheless, my puzzling query is why
    am i able to move files back and forth, yet on c: and D: files and folders
    are in black, yet on newly created F; drive the lettering is in blue? any
    ideas why?

    It will do exactly as you tell it to do.


    As to the blue...do you have compression enabled?
    That's probably the reason

  4. More likely, the new partition is a logical partition in a new extended partition. Both
    entities would be differently colored than primaries.
