  1. Local Disk C full

    Hello everyone.

    First of all I am not an English speaker but I will try to explain myself.

    The problem I have is that the local disk C is just 48,2GB, so it gets full pretty quickly. But the disk D is 882GB and I do not need that much for my things.

    I tried to expand C. So I find out that first I have to reduce the one next to C. I have C, then Disk 0 partition 1, then disk 0 partition 4, and disk D.

    When I click on C it just lets me reduce it. It does not let me do anything at all with the one next to it Disk 0 partition 1. With disk 0 partition 4 it just shows "help". And I can reduce disk D but the GB that the program takes out from there just go to no where, and I still can not expand disk C.

    I really need to expand disk C, because with 42GB I can not do nearly anything. I try to install all the programs to disk D, but many programs intall directly in disk C without the option to change it.

    I would really apreciate if someone can help me somehow because I do not know what to do anymore.

    Thank you.

    • Locate and select Disk drives.
    • Right-click on your disk drive, select Properties.
    • Go to the Driver tab and choose Update Driver.

    why do 2 Local Disks get isolated?

    This HP has a new SSD. I just now found this and wonder if it is stupids and/or dangerous to try <

    "How to delete EFI partition with Diskpart

    Step 1. Hit "Windows Key + R to open the run dialogue box, enter "diskpart" and click "OK" to open a black command prompt window.
    Step 2. Type "list disk" to display all the disks of your computer. Type "select disk n" to identify which disk you need to work with. Here n stands for the disk letter.
    Step 3. Type "list partition" to display all the volumes on the hard drive. Type "select partition n" to identify which partition you want to remove. Here n stands for the volume letter.
    Step 4. Type "delete partition override" to remove the EFI partition. Finally, type "exit" to close the windows when you receive the message says, DiskPart successfully deleted the selected partition"

    just for a better understanding, but not wanting to complete it, I took these steps >

    so C: should be using 70GB I assume (461- 391)

    Am sure my lack of expert knowledge is showing!
