Can I INCREASE the size of a partition in my hard drive?? I am aware that I
can shrink the individual volumes, but What I want to do, is increase the
size of my boot drive. I have unallocated storage available to add to it,
but I cannot figure out how to do it... Please help!! My C: Drive is almost
full...

Hi Jeff,

Only if the space is located at the end of the drive. Otherwise, you'll need
to use a third party partitioning utility (my choice for this work is BootIT
NG) to slide the existing one(s) around so that it is. Only then will you be
able to expand it.

Vista but it still will not let me extend the partition to the left of it.
