i previously have 2 partitions in my 160 Gb harddrive. one 40Gb (C:)for system, os, and programs, and the other 160Gb (D:) is for my data. Then i suddenly realized that 40Gb for system and programs isnt enough. so i am trying to extend my C:. I have some free space in my D: so i shrunk it to 154Gb. then this happened.

but even making a free unallocated space i still can not extend my C: but i have an option to extend D:
i think that this is because of the positioning of the unallocated space. i think in order to extend my C:, the unallocated space must be adjacent to it. but that is just my guess.

If i was right about the positioning idea, what can i do to have the unallocated space in the adjacent part of the C:?
If my guess was wrong, what do you guys think the problem is?

Geekako,

This is a great new feature to Windows Vista. I just did some research on my Virtual Machine. Your idea is right on target.
How I would go about this depends on how much data you have on drive D.

thanks tuxmaster for the reply. i solved it already. i discovered a partition management software (acronis) and with that i was able to move the unallocated space beside my C:// so i was able to expand C.
