Hello all.
My SSD has 2 partitions
1. C: Windows 7
2. E: GPU Clock Tool, Razer Keyboard, Logitech G1 mouse drivers, Killer 2100 NIC and STEAM install file.
Partition C is running out of space (7GB free). Partition E is almost empty (49.51GB free). .
Please correct me if my thinking is wrong on this.
I want to extend C: to install a few more programs. To do this correctly I should delete all installed programs on E: delete E: then extend C.
The STEAM file on E: is the installation file only. Steam itself is installed on C: with Windows. Will I have to uninstall it completely?

As always thanks’ everybody

Just back up everything important from drive E, delete it (don't need to delete the files before), and extend C to take all free space.

I would also backup drive C before doing it, you know, the devil never sleeps. ;-)

You don't need to uninstall anything from drive C. Why would you think that?

Well the reason I ask is the steam installation file alone is on the E: partition but the steam program and COD is installed on C:.

So basically I think you agree with me. I should uninstall all the stuff on E first so I don't have a lot of orphaned files on the computer?


Thanks

Ah, yes. I didn't quite catch that those programs (GPU Clock Tool, etc.) are *installed* there. Yes, uninstall them.
