  1. My Storage Space In my desktop on My C drive shows that I have 20 gbs worth of storage already.


    I did a thorough parsing through all of the files on the desktops and most of the things on my desktop are shortcuts to other apps that are on a separate harddrive. Through my parsing I would estimate that there's alone around 5GB of files stored on my desktop but I can't find what's causing the remaining excess of storage.

    :)

    extend c drive storage space

    Hi, I'm , an Independent Advisor.

    Disk Management is a Windows built-in tool that supports to increase partition size with its "Extend Volume" feature. However, the program has some limitations in increasing disk space:

    - Extend Volume only works on NTFS and RAW partition. FAT32 and other file systems are not supported.

    - The Extend Volume will grey out if there is no adjacent unallocated space behind the target partition.

    So, the ways to increasing C drive with or without adjacent unallocated space are different. Open the Disk Management, and follow the right tutorials listed below to extend the local disk C drive on your own now:

    #1. Increase C Drive Space with Adjacent Unallocated Space

    Step 1. Right-click This PC/My Computer, click "Manage", select "Disk Management" under Storage.

    Step 2. Locate and right-click on the local disk C drive, and choose "Extend Volume".

    Step 3. Set and add more space to your system C drive and click "Next" to continue.

    Step 4. Click "Finish" to complete the process.

    Note that if that unallocated space on your system disk is not behind the C drive, you can't extend C drive in Disk Management.

    Hope this helps. Let me know if I can help you further!

    Show storage space in This PC


    I can't get This PC to show the storage space bars for my drives and I've done all that's been suggested in this thread.
    Any ideas why I might not be able to make the storage space bars show?
