    How to Remove Recovery/Backup from Primary Drive.

    Through pure ignorance, although I have always kept my backup for my PC on an external drive plus an ISO USB, I decided to try the Macrium Reflect to backup my Primary Drive (C), I assumed that it would create it's own partition stupid yes, it proceeded
    to place 2 copies of my entire drive "C" onto the same partition. No new drive. Running Windows 10 -newest version. Only 2 drives "C" and "G", "G" being the Recovery Drive. The backups that Reflect show up nowhere except as Recovery. Tried to do a clean reinstall
    thinking that it would wipe everything off and start over, but no, the backup was still on Drive "C", just as before. My question is, how can I get these Backups off my Primary drive?

    How do I expand my "C" drive with a new created volume?

    Short answer.. you can't. As far as I know the empty volume has to be on the right had side of your C partition before you can expand it.

    Someone might have a better answer and I would like to know it it's possible.

    I might expand my "E" drive back to it's original size.

    I think that's the right thing to do. That 800 MB you could add to C: is totally insignificant.

    Well I am surprised to hear some of these answers. I've done what you want to do on my old computer, using MiniTool and from a Boot disk and it was EASY!!! no problem. left side or right side. Seeing how your New Volume is right next to your C-drive, MiniTool can extend your C-drive in about 5 sec's. BUT, like I always say, and do myself ... Make a image backup first. Then extend your C-drive. Bottom line is THIS can be done....with MiniTool ISO which is a free program.

    I think in this particular case it is not relevant if it is easy or not; the space OP could add to C: is 0.8 GB whereas the C: is already over 460 GB. The additional space gained is so insignificant the process is not worth doing.
     
  12. I'm worried that if this doesn't work, I might not be able to restore my "E" boot disk into a smaller partition.

    Suggestion. Do not try to move your partition until after performing an image backup. I tried this in the past with Win 8.1 and my disk signature changed resulting in failure to start Windows.

    I never had to do that before so that's why I wasn't sure.

    Ok if you are worried and don't feel right about trying to extend your c-drive partition, then don't. Makes me wonder why you shrank your partition in the 1st place. But, if you made a Complete Image Backup 1st, using something like Macrium Reflect 1st, saved it on a different drive, then you could play with re-sizing your c-drive partition, without ANY worries. Any changes to your partitions that someone wants to make, they should always make image backups 1st. Then it won't matter if it works or not, you just restore your computer back to the original state it was in. You just need to do these steps from a boot disk, or boot usb , I prefer using my dvd. bottom line if your nervous about these changes, don't do it. Your choice.
