Hard drive partition RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Dell Inspirion 1764.  The hard drive is factory partitioned.  The file system is NTSF.  "C" drive, which holds the Windows 7 OS, is 60 meg, loaded to about 58 meg, and drive "D" is approximately 400 meg and is practically empty.  I tried to increase the C drive partition at the command prompt with no success.  

    Should I be trying to increase the C drive or decrease the D drive.  If I do decrease the D drive will the C drive automatically increase?

  • Hi,

     

    You cannot increase system driver on Windows 7.

     

    You can just decrease system driver and increase it to other driver. But you cannot decrease other driver then increase system driver.

  • What program are you using to perform the partition, and it this software used within windows or from a command prompt at boot?
