    Expanding OS partition


    Disk Management shows my OS resided on a 223GB partition (CExpanding OS partition :) on an SSD that has 477GB. The SSD has these partitions:


    102 MB Unallocated | OS (CExpanding OS partition :) 223 GB NTFS Healthy (Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, Primary Partition) | 103 MB Healthy (EFI System Partition) | 253 GB Unallocated


    I want to use that 253 of "Unallocated" space. I want to merge it into OS (CExpanding OS partition :) increasing OS (CExpanding OS partition :) from 223GB to 477GB all on the same physical SSD.


    None of the instructions, and question answers give me any help EaseUS Partition Master and Microsoft Disk Management both refuse to allow me to change either OS (CExpanding OS partition :) or 253 GB Unallocated.

    :)

    W7 Hard drive partition issue

    to get rid of that 100 meg windows partition that setup creates for you on a new install on a blank hdd:

    - press shift+f10 when on the partition management screen in setup <-- this opens a command prompt
    - diskpart <-- start the windows command line partition management tool
    - list disk <--- list the installed hdds in this computer for the next step
    - select disk 0 <- might have to replace 0 with the number of the correct disk
    - clean <-- this will erase all data on the disk you selected one step up- dont use the wrong disk!
    - create partition primary <- creates a primary partition taking up all space on the drive, adjust the command if necessary
    - exit, exit to exit diskpart and the command prompt
    - click refresh in partition manager and select your newly created partition and install to that

    Partition or multiple hard drives?

    As the title suggests. Is it worth installing say a 36GB drive for the OS soley or partitioning an existing larger drive with either 2 or more partitions? I am currently running Vista 32bit and want to try out 64bit and am sick of reformatting the whole drive. Any suggestions?

  4. Expanding OS partition

    undo partition shrink

    Hi,

    If you accidentally shrink the volume of your SSD partition, there is an option to extend the volume as well. To extend the volume of your SSD partition, follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + X on your keyboard and select Disk Management.
    • Right-click the partition that you want to expand and click Extend Volume.
    • Select the amount of space that you want to extend.

    Keep us in the loop with the result.
