    Cannot extend system partition after cloning system to larger drive


    After using an image cloning software to clone my system from a 120 gb ssd to a 500 gb ssd, the partition for the system stays the same, and the option to extend volume in disk manager is greyed out.


    How do I make it so that my system partition uses the full 500 gb of free space that my new drive has?

    :)

    Extend System Drive but recovery partition is in the way.

    In this case, you can use a freeware to extend system drive. Many software can do this work, like easeus, acronis and AOEMI Partition. As for me, I use AOMEI for 2 years, so far, it works fine. Two Solutions to Extend System Partition in Windows 7 to Unallocated Space

    Extend System Drive but recovery partition is in the way.

    I just replaced my system drive with a bigger drive. Worked fine, but now I can't extend the partition because the free space is not contiguous. I have a System Reserved (350MB), C-Drive/healthy/boot/etc (297GB), Recovery Partition (450MB), Unallocated (167GB).
    So when I right click on C-Drive, expand partition is greyed out. I assume it's because the unallocated space is not contiguous.

    I'm running windows 10. Anyone have any ideas how I can resolve this and make one single system drive?

    how to extend system partition in window10

    Press Windows key + X

    Click Disk Management

    Right click the System volume and click the ‘Extend Volume’ option on the contextual menu, click ‘Yes’ when the warning appears.

    A wizard will now begin that will guide through the steps to merge back the unallocated space with your system partition.

    The wizard provides a simple procedure to merge back the unallocated space with the system drive. Once you have selected the space, click Next, at the end of the wizard, you will see the amount allocated.
