size of partition
Does anyone know how to increase the size of the partition "D", so that I
can have a larger system restore capacity? My computer (Vista Home Premium)
will not establish a restore point because my basic programs are too big,
and exceed the partition capacity. Help, I am really dumb never operated a
computer before, hehe

Re: size of partition
Do you, in fact, have unallocated drive space that you can add to partition
D? How big is your drive? How big is partition C? How much of C is utilized?
