    Extend C: drive volume


    Hi, I need some help trying to extend my C: drive volume. I removed the volume that had my Ubuntu because I don't need it anymore and I want Windows to have 1TB, not 500GB. This is what Disk Management looks like for me:

    Extend C: drive volume 82526f1c-18c2-4a77-888b-e371c7a4f560?upload=true.png When I try to extend the C: volume, the option is greyed out:

    Extend C: drive volume 9907dfcc-19f8-4acb-a9f1-ffd275003240?upload=true.png I've tried using AOMEI Partition Assistant to extend the volume but when it made my computer restart into Windows PE mode, it came up with a command prompt that said a file was missing and it didn't do anything other than wait for input. I closed the window and my PC rebooted back to normal, and nothing changed. Does anyone know how I could accomplish this?

    :)

  2. OS (CExtend C: drive volume :) Drive - Extending the Volume

    I've recently purchased a new laptop and came across a problem regarding the storage volume. It seems there's an arbitrary partition where C: drive has 100GB allocated and the remaining 900GB+ is unallocated. When I tried to extend the volume of C: to include
    the 900GB, the option to extend the volume was grayed out and unusable.

    Unfortunately, I just don't know enough to figure out why all that space is unallocated and why I can't extend the volume of the C: drive. Searching for the answer yielded a lot of suggestions for third-party software, but I'd like to avoid that solution
    if possible. Are there any other options?

    How to extend C partition

    Hi Kevin,

    Thank you for the information provided.

    Please to inform you that you need to have an “unallocated disk space” to the right of the Partition\Volume you wish to extend on the same drive. Only when “unallocated disk space” is available “extend” option is highlighted.

    I suggest you to try these steps and check if they helps.

    Step1: Press Windows + R and Diskmgmt.msc and try the following

    a. Right click the basic volume want to extend.

    b. Click extend volume.

    c. Follow the instruction on the screen.

    Step2: Open a command prompt and type diskpart.

    At the DISKPART prompt, type list volume. Make note of the basic volume you want to extend.

    At the DISKPART prompt, type select volume <volumenumber>. This selects the basic volume volumenumber that you want to extend into contiguous, empty space on the same disk.

    At the DISKPART prompt, type extend [size=<size>]. This extends the selected volume by size megabytes (MB).

    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help.
