  1. Limited disk space on C:\ drive


    I bought this Dell desktop from one of the local Microcenter stores, which was a returned item. It came with the C:\ drive supposedly being a flash drive with measly 95 gb of diskspace. I didn't realise it then, but it is making my computer starving for diskspace on C:\ drive and memory issues when I run memory intensive programs which are resource hogs, like MS Flight Simulator X, or . I know, I know... I can set the cofiguration to store files on Secondary drive, which is much larger drive. The problem is that many programs do not give an option to select the destination for installation or where they store data, or have extensive read/write activity, which goes straight to C:\ . And the result is that sometimes, some web sites fail to open or crash with the message that there is not enough memory to open the page, or run an application. Is there anything I can do remedy this?

    :)

    Unallocated Space to C Drive

    Hi Travis,

    It appears that a disk partition was created but was never assigned its allocation. Assuming there are no files stored in the unallocated partition, perform these steps to combine it with your C: drive:

    • In Disk Management, right-click on (CLimited disk space on C:\ drive :) which appears next to the
      Unallocated partition.
    • Select Extend.

    Let us know if you're able to combine the spaces after following the steps above.

    Regards.

    Limited disk space on C:\ drive

    Windows 10 Disk Management - cannot extend C: drive to allocated space

    Hello, I followed all of the steps listed and it is still not working. The issue may be that the unallocated space is located on Disk 1 when my C: drive is on Disk 0 and I cannot seem to get them both on the same disk. Do you know if there is a solution
    for this?
