Partitioning a disk drive


Vince

Recommended Posts

On a completely different computer the drive is partitioned into two drives. There is data on both, however one is full of legit files. I need to get space from the other to the one that is filled up. They are both contained on the same disk. I know how to move space when one drive is completely empty, but in this case they both have data on them. Anyone know how to?

Using windows 7 by the way

 

Thanks

Really? I don't think I've ever heard someone say "move space" 

 

Anyways, from what I could gather from your post what you want to do is called cut and paste.

I'm assuming you want to keep both partitions, otherwise the post above will probably work for you. What you want to do is defrag both partitions. This will rearrange all the data on each so it is contained in one chunk at the beginning of each partition. Then use a partition manager (I highly recommend EaseUS free) to trim off the excess space from one. Then you can add that free space to the other. Hit apply, let your computer restart, and voila. However, make sure you defrag again after all this.
