    Move EFI partition

    its to enable win 10 to update to its anniversary edition.. it cant do this due to lack of C drive space i have had a quick try with the trial version of easus.. it didnt seem to be able to do what i want..

    i am assuming i cant just delete the efi partition but maybe i could.. as yet i havnt even figured out how to get into the bios of the thing.. maybe that should be my next step.. *Smile What Is EFI? How to identify EFI System Partitions on Windows 11/10? :)

    diskpart could probably do it but figuring out how (it aint that user friendly) might be difficult without step by step instructions..

    EFI System Partition

    So, an EFI system partition is perfectly normal on a Windows 10 disk (I assumed you've done an internet search and discovered that this partition is for booting your system).

    Are you trying to backup the contents of this partition?.... if so, what software are you using?
