I have Windows 7. When I open Disk Management, it shows only one disk, Disk 0 and lists System Reserve, D (Date), and C. My C drive/volume is very large but it only contains OS files, and 75% of this drive is unused. My D drive/volume,
where I keep all my data files, is getting full. Using Disk Management I am able to shrink C so that I have 60 gb of unallocated space. When I right-click D however, the "Extend Volume" is greyed out and I am unable to use the extend feature to
increase its size to incorporate the 60 mb of unallocated space. Can anyone help me increase the size of my D drive/volume?
If you are unable to make changes to partitions using Disk Management below are partitioning programs you can use.
Paragon Partition Manager (free):
A good program for making general changes to hard drive partitions while Windows is running. Create, delete, format, and resize partitions with this program. It can also defragment, check file system integrity, and more. Be careful, re-sizing partitions is
usually safe but errors can happen, and always backup anything important before modifying partitions on your hard drive. http://www.paragon-software.com/home/pm-express/download.html
