Extend the size of a disk partition
Posted on 2013-01-28
I just reinstalled (via the Recovery Discs) Windows 7 Professionals on my Lenovo Thinkad 520.
I have a small (80G) mSata drive in it that I used to install the OS on.
However, the Windows (C) partition seems to be only 42.11 G instead of the full size. When I run the Disk Management Utilility it show the disc as having 4 partitions:
Syste)DRV (1.17GB NTFS), Windows7_OS (C:) as 42.11 GB NTFS, Lenovo_Recovery (Q:) at 9.03GB NTFS and finally a 22.22 GB block called free space.
I would like the Windows 7 partition to take up as much space as possible (except for the recovery portion.) I tried "extending" the C: partition, but it said it could only be extended to an adjacent (contiguous) partition.
Any help would be appreciated.
