  1. How to reduce Windows size in C?


    Hi, I have a small SSD and I want the minimal possible install of Windows and transfer what is possible of C:\ to disk D:\, specially files that don't need to be loaded fast. I already moved user folders to D:\ but I don't know if it is possible to move non importat stuff from Windows folder or something like that to another disk.

    Other thing: is there a safe and good ISO of a reduced Windows? I just use it to play games and I don't need the included software, Cortana or pretty much anything other than Windows Explorer and drivers, not even system restore is needed since if I have any problem it is just format and reinstall the games.

    :)

    Window 10: C drive disk size reduces automatically.

    My suggestion would be to reduce the size of the new volume and move the unallocated space next to the (CHow to reduce Windows size in C? :) and extend (CHow to reduce Windows size in C? :) into the

    that area.

    You might want to do a Disk Cleanup first including cleaning the system files.

    The Disk Cleanup app is included in all apps under Windows Administrative.

  3. Extend C drive Size

    Your Image does not show a D partition. It does show an F partition which if reduced in size would enable you to increase the size of the C partition.



    These are the steps needed to enable you to increase the size of your C partition:




    • Reduce F by 20 gb placing the unallocated space before F.

    • Increase the Recovery partition by 20 gb taking up unallocated space created by Step 1.

    • Reduce the Recovery partition by 20 gb placing the unallocated space before the Recovery partition.

    • Increase the C partition by 20 gb to take in the unallocated space before the Recovery partition.


    You can use Easeus Partition Manager (freeware) to carry out these tasks. The files in each partition are automatically moved when you carry out each step detailed above.
