My laptop has a local C drive with a capacity of 160Gb. It has a free space of 149Gb and is partitioned at 37.5Gb for Drive D. The Drive D (used for Backup) is full and I need to increase it's size. The operating system is Windows 7 Ultimate - 32 bit. Is this possible - If so How do I do it? Thanks - Dave D

The same hard drive should NOT be used as a back-up.

hang on 160GB will equal 149 in real GB's your D: is 37GB, whats your C:? go to start menu type disk man, and pick create format etc. you'll be able to see here what is actually free.

come back to us with this.

Danny is right backing up to the same disk is only a little better than nothing.
