Resize a Hard Drive from within Windows 7

This screencast takes a look at how to extend the size of your computers C partition using the tools within Microsoft's Windows 7. Extending the size of your C drive or any partition in your computer is a relatively straight forward process but it dose have its draw back. A Windows partition can only be extended in to its neighbouring partition which must be an unallocated space. This means that if the drive you are thinking of making larger has a neighbour that is in use that drive will have to be deleted! The only way round this if you are using Windows 7 to extend your drive is to back-up all the data on the neighbouring drive then delete it, extend C then replace your date, that's the draw back. Once all your data is safely taken care of the rest of the task is easy as this screencast will show. Please visit for more info and screencasts.
