Disk Management - Partitioning problem
Hi, I have a 500G Hard Drive that I decided to Partition and now have a
284.6G "C" Drive, 9.77 Unallocated Space, a 87.75 "X" Drive, a 36.81 "Y"
Drive and a 48.83 "Z" Drive. After moving files, folders,... , I noticed
that the "C" Drive has 251G Free and tried to re-size (reallocate) some of
the space Free Space in "C" (I don't think that I need more than 50Gs) but
the Vista HP Disk Management program does not allow me to do anything with
the "C" Drive. When I try and shrink the "C" Drive, I am advised that "0"
available so my question is, am I stuck with a humongous "C" Drive or is
their a way to reallocate some of the unused space to "X" (where I keep my
data files), "Y" where I have Photos and "Z" which I use (exclusively) for
Backup / System Restore images? One other note, when I try and allocate the
Unallocated Space, Dis Manager only allows me to combine it with "C" NOT "X",
"Y" or "Z". Thanks, Bob

Re: Disk Management - Partitioning problem
Your effectively wasteing space / effort by keeping backups / images on a
partition within a single drive.
If that drive fails so do all your efforts.
