Hello guys,

I put ssď in my laptop and it works well
But, the drive has just divided from itself to two partitions (c, d) ( c=64gb 13gb left) (d=40g 30gb left)

Now how I make These two partitions one partition (119gb) ? ?

Another Question: how do I know if my ssd working on sata 3 or sata 2

Thanks

If you do not have DATA on d: (you seem to have 10 gigabytes, if you move it over to c: you can use Windows built in Disk Management) windows built in disk management(diskmgmt.msc) can be used to remove that partition and extend the c partition to take the extra space.

If you have a System Reserved partition, Please do NOT touch it as it is needed to boot the system.

If you have DATA on d: , you may be able to use EaseUS ALL-IN-ONE Partition Manager Software to merge the 2 partitions. Again, do NOT mess with any system reserved partitions.

Only The system is on c partition and the d partition I just installed the game in it (I can remove it)

So, what should I do?

If they are games, You should uninstall them(take copies of any mods/screen captures/save games) then remove that partition and extend the other one.

After you have ensured you no longer have any files you want on that partition we will remove it.

Once you are in Disk Management(Start + R and type diskmgmt.msc or just search it from the start search feature).

Here is an image of the 2 steps. Yes it is this easy :) 

Do not worry about the fact that my drive letters are different. I have no other partitions on my main drive.


So.

1. Right click d: and select Delete Volume. You will get a warning about data loss(you better make sure you have all the files OFF that partition).
2. Right click the c: and select Extend Volume. It will auto fill the extend size to take the full drive so you can just click next to complete the operation.

When it is all done, You should have one large drive.

Since this is an SSD. Please make sure you NEVER DEFRAGMENT IT.

Thank you alot

I have a question when do it shows that full space is 108gb should it be 119?

Another thing I read people says yo should leve 20% of the space for ssd is that true? And I my case I have 108gb how much space (in numbers) should I leave ?

And thank you

Do NOT remove the 2 other partitions please.

The 10gigabyte is a system recovery partition and the 100megatbyte ones is required to boot the system.

For your SSD to work at peak efficiency, yes, you should leave some free space(15-20% for most users). This allows the drive some space to create clean blocks to avoid slowdowns. You can safely fill the drive right up, but performance can suffer.
