I am in the process of installing windows 7 on my pc... I would just like to know what the implications of extending a partition are. Will I lose data that is on the partition I wish to extend??? Thanks

If you are using the Windows 7 Disk Management tool, you should not lose any data if the system can actually move/re-align the data.

However, there is not 100% failsafe. Make a back up before you do anything.

Good luck!

If there any errors, the tool will let you know and will stop the process.
