Merging Partitions RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to merge partitions because my C Drive (which has all my important files and programs) doesn't have enough space to function properly. I've already deleted my D Drive, and now have over 229 GB of unallocated space. However, when I try to extend my C Drive into this space, my computer blue-screens. If I try to extend my C Drive while in Safe Mode, my computer tells me that there isn't enough space to perform this action. How do I get it to work?

  • Run system disk check , it might be due to bad sectors or other problems with the disk.
