Extend Logical Drive to freespace or convert Tags: Partition Storage Last response: May 20, 2011 2:24 PM in Storage Share bigsexytaco April 6, 2011 6:44:29 PM I recently pulled my 2TB storage drive out of a file server, and have since plugged it directly into my desktop. The drive had 2 partitions; OS and DATA. I deleted the OS partition freeing up 30GB of space, and would like to combine it with the data partition without loosing data. The data partition is labeled as a logical drive with Extended partition. In windows 7 I can select Extend via disk management, but it fails to convert to a basic disk stating "not enough free space". http://img263.imageshack.us/img263/3408/captureaj.jpg Any thoughts on how to either extend my existing partition, or convert the logical drive to a primary partition? I have never had trouble extending a primary partition to the adjacent free space.
