  1. Can't extend windows 10 partition into unallocated space


    Hi all,
    Until recently, I ran a dual boot system with Ubuntu - but for business reasons, I uninstalled it (along with it's bootloader).
    Anyway, I cleared up the hard drive space in the Disk Management app on windows 10,
    I have about 350GB free space from Ubuntu and I cannot extend the C: partition, you can see what I mean here

    I can't seem to extend my partition and whatever program I use I have to buy the full version to extend my partition,
    Help!

    :)

    Moving the Unallocated space next to the C:/ drive partition

    In disk management, you are allowed to create partition, extend partition, shrink partition, etc. However, there is no way to move partition.

    according to your description, I think you want to extend your C drive. However, the unallocated space is not at the right adjacent side of C drive. Thus, you cannot extend your C drive.

    To extend your C drive, I recommend you free AOMEI Partition Assistant. It offers you a feature called

    Move Partition
    . With it, you can move unallocated space to the right adjacent to C drive. Aside by that, it offers you an easier way: extend c drive to unallocated space via Merge Partition. With this way, you do not need to move unallocated space. What's
    more, you can merge C drive with any unallocated space on the disk.

    No disk space / memory for W10 update 1709

    if your computer has extra unallocated space, you can try to extend c drive with the unallocated space.

    in disk management, you are only allowed to use the right adjacent unallocated space to extend your c drive. so, if you want to extend
    c drive
    , you can use a professional partition manager like AOMEI Partition Assistant. in this software, you have various options, including Extend Partition Wizard, Move Partition and Resize Partition, Merge Partition. all of them can help you fix the
    low disk space warning.

    Can't extend windows 10 partition into unallocated space

    Try MiniTool Partition wizard. It is free.
    I used it several time when I was unable to "extend" the volume back to my main drive.
    Windows' own diskmanagement is no better than a ground-level app for partitions.

    Wow, did you literally just buy it as well? The free software won't do anything at all. The "demo" software also won't do anything at all--especially what you were trying to do. Nice advertising though guys!
