  1. Extend disk space not working


    Recovery drive D: is short of space. I created unallocated drive space using disk management to move space from C: which has plenty. However , right clicking on D: or unallcated space in the disk management pop up just brings up 'help' not a command to expand space etc. So now how can I move the unallocated space to the recovery drive D: ??

    :)

    extend c drive storage space

    Hi, I'm , an Independent Advisor.

    Disk Management is a Windows built-in tool that supports to increase partition size with its "Extend Volume" feature. However, the program has some limitations in increasing disk space:

    - Extend Volume only works on NTFS and RAW partition. FAT32 and other file systems are not supported.

    - The Extend Volume will grey out if there is no adjacent unallocated space behind the target partition.

    So, the ways to increasing C drive with or without adjacent unallocated space are different. Open the Disk Management, and follow the right tutorials listed below to extend the local disk C drive on your own now:

    #1. Increase C Drive Space with Adjacent Unallocated Space

    Step 1. Right-click This PC/My Computer, click "Manage", select "Disk Management" under Storage.

    Step 2. Locate and right-click on the local disk C drive, and choose "Extend Volume".

    Step 3. Set and add more space to your system C drive and click "Next" to continue.

    Step 4. Click "Finish" to complete the process.

    Note that if that unallocated space on your system disk is not behind the C drive, you can't extend C drive in Disk Management.

    Hope this helps. Let me know if I can help you further!

  3. Extend Volume in disk managment not working

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. Let me help you.




    • Since when did the issue started appearing?

    • Have you made any changes in settings prior to the issue?

    • Do you receive any error code or error message on the screen?


    I suggest you to follow the exact steps mentioned below and check if you are able to perform the action.


    • Run Disk Management. Open Run Command (Windows button +R) a dialog box will open and type "diskmgmt.msc".

    • In the Disk Management screen, just right-click on the partition that you want to shrink, and select “Extend Volume” from the menu

    • Locate your system partition — that’s probably the C: partition. Right-click on it and select “Shrink Volume.” If you have multiple partitions on your hard drive, you could also choose to resize a different partition to free up
      space.
    Check if it helps.



    Please reply with the details and updated status of the issue. We will be happy to assist you further.

    Extend disk space not working

    Unable to Use Unallocated Space to Extend Partition

    Okay...thanks. Will look at it tomorrow. FYI, I figured out how to get that unformatted G partition back into D.

    In Disk Management, I right clicked G and selected "Delete Volume." That rendered the partition as unallocated. I was then able to extend D with that space.

    Thanks again for all of the help!
