Hrdidsk Partition Extension with Motive to Get One Single 150 GB Partition


K..... I have this Seagate hardisk of 250 GB....

Initially I created 4 partitions on the disk C: 30, D: 78,E: 78, F: 47, this was working out for me fine..
Now that I download a lot of stuff from Torrents(Private Tracker).... I need a single bigger partition so that I can seed the downloaded stuff
hence a 78 GB partition is not working out for me....

I went for dumping of complete data of one partition of 78 GB.... and deleting that partition...
The partition on which I store downloaded data is also of 78 GB and have 24.9 GB of free space on it...
Partition C:, F: of 30 GB and 47 GB has 1.44 GB, 818 MB of free space...

I tried to extend my torrenting partition(E drive with a thought that existing E: drive and the unallocated partition of 78 gb can be combined together but I am not able to do so.....

The whole motive of all this step is to get a single big partition of 150 GB FOR storing DOWNLOADED DATA AT one single place....
What should I do in this circumstance.... As I dont have any more space that I can clear of data on Torrenting drive and hence delete the partition and then create one big partition

What will you techies advice....

Dude you are sounding terribly confused, post a screenshot of your disk manager and then I will understand better.
for resizing your partitions you can use paragon partition manager or acronis disk director. but before using them I want to see the screenie...so that you dont do anything to harm your system.

Re: Hrdidsk Partition Extension with Motive to Get One Single 150 GB Partition

I am running Windows 7 x86........

In Disk Managment option, the extend volume option is not coming when I right click on the E: drive....
Though I have 78 GB free unpartitioned space...

I laugh when people make multiple partitions in a small hdd. Op just back-up data, format whole hdd, make a 15GB partition for your OS, keep the rest hdd as one single one, KISS it. (Keep it short and simple!)

Bhai Rockfella.... This is my Home Computer that I was using 4 years back.... At that time 250 GB was itself a huge space...
My PC at college has 1.5 TB space and well partitioned...


And the solution you told about.... I dont have any more space to dump the data... And I cant lose data on my torrenting partition...

use a third party tool like Acronis Disk Director

Re: Hrdidsk Partition Extension with Motive to Get One Single 150 GB Partition

Nope I am not.... I got a way out.....

Actually in disk managment you can extend from left to right(means a filled disk on left hand side can be extended to a free space on right hand side but vise versa is not allowed........)

So I dumped all the remaining data on left disk, deleted the right partition and extended the left partition(the option of extnd volume on right click was coming now....)

Here is the screenie after merging....

I suggested using Acronis disk director or Paragon partition manager. use them and merge the partitions, 99% you will not loose the data on the partition.
