How to expand partitions other than C: RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have Vista Business. My hard drive has two primary partitions: C: and F:. Vista's Admin Tools lets me shrink and expand the C: drive but will only let me shrink the F: drive. Both C: and F: are Vista boot partitions. I no longer care about the C: partition but I'm told I can't just reformat it because the boot code for F: resides there. Therefore I'd like to shrink the C: partition and expand the F: partition to use the newly-freed space. Is there a way to do that? From reading the article at http://www.thelazyadmin.com/index.php?/archives/445-Whats-New-in-Vista-Volume-Resizing.html#extended I suspect that I can't do this since both C: and F: are system partitions. However, I did some experimentation and was able to successfully shrink and then re-expand my C: drive which in turn makes me wonder if the article was entirely accurate.
