  • Extend Primary Partition

    Hi,

    I am using Win Vista Home Professional. I want to extend my existing C Drive(primary partition). I have tried some tools like Partition Magic and others which give me that they are not compatible with Vista. can anyone suggest me any better option to extend my Primary partition.

    thanks in Advance..

        Mohan - you want to extend by decreasing the size of another partition?

        I have 2 partitions on my main 120 GB IDE drive, both created as primary partitions.... C and F. I just shrunk F by 1 GB and extended C by 1 GB....

        Is this what you are trying to do?

            Something is not right- unless....

            Did you upgrade to Vista with the partitions sizes as they are now, or did you create the E: partition from inside Vista?

            As I said, I have 2 equally sized partitions, (C and F in my case) and both are *primary* partitions, and I can successfully shrink my F partition and then increase my C partition....

                Have you tried the Disk Managerment?Open Control Panel, Click on Admin... Tools, click on Computer management, click on Disk Management. Or some partition tools may help you. Google it and there are some freeware such as:
