    Extending a partition with a backup set up


    Hi!, My backup partition is running out of space and I want to expand it. I went to computer management > disk manager and I freed some space and went to extend disk, then a message popped up saying that it will convert this disk to a dynamic and you won't be able to boot from it.


    Is this the correct way to extend this backup volume ? and if it isn't what's the correct way ?

    :)

  2. 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.
