I have a 1TB harddisk i have partitioned it into 3 drives 250gb(c drive), 250gb(d drive), 500gb(e drive). Now i want to shrink my c drive to 75gb and allocate the remaining space(175gb) to e drive. I've searched all over the internet but could'nt get the answer.... pls solve my query...
you cant do that in windows management if you already have an os on the other partitions, you will need like partition magic etc to do that. if not all you should have to do is just delete the partition you want to move it to if nothings on it then shrink c then recreate that other partition. 95gb is really small for c unless you set stuff to save to the other partitions
I have used Partition Master and it worked well. linked by mcnumpty23
I have tried the defrag + shrink method but most times the page file or other object gets in the way.
Also Gparted works well, but sometimes results in a need to to a startup repair or use another system to edit the bcd entry(I think that only happens if you move the start point of C .
Important thing when messing with partitions is that you will see a system reserved partition(small 100(I think i have seen it as big as 300 on Win8) megabyte partition before everything). Don't mess with it as that is what boots windows.
