I got a new hard drive for Christmas, and decided to go with a partitioned OS. I chose 60 GB (that was the upper range I saw in one article on the subject) for the OS's partition. Apparently that was not enough for Windows 7 Pro, as I haven't quite gotten all my updates and I'm down to less than 4 gigs space. (Should have waited for my cousin's advice; he belatedly told me to do 100).
Here are my partitions as they are now.
There's 16 gigs there on the left and I should be able to extend into that (unless you can only extend to the right?), but I can't. The OS partition is also the boot volume, and from what I've read you can't extend a boot partition in Windows 7's Disk Manager.
I have, however, seen that there are programs that can add unallocated space from anywhere on the disk to a partition, and supposedly onto a boot volume. AOMEI's Partition Assistant, EaseUs, Partition Manager, etc. Has anyone done this with any of these programs, and if so how did it go? Or is there a way to do it just through Windows's built-in tools?
