I'm not sure if I'm posting in the correct forum, so my apologies if this is in the wrong forum.

 

I have two partitons on my hard drive, and I'm trying to extend one of them. One is a logical drive (the one I'm trying to extend) and the other is the primary drive. When I shrink space from the primary drive to extend the logical drive, it doesn't work. I have unallocated space on my hard drive, and I can't extend the logical drive. Is there a way to fix this?

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi,

 

Can you post a screenshot of the Disk Manager showing the partitions please.

 

Are you using any tool to do the resize or only the windows Disk Manager?

I have a picture, but I don't know how to attach it. How do I do so?

 

By the way, I'm using Windows Disk Management.

A logical partition has to be contained within a primary partition. You can't expand a logical partition outside the bounds of the containing primary.

Definitely need to see the Disk Management screen capture. Make sure it's full screen and all fields are expanded as needed so you can see everything, especially the Status column.

Because with Windows Disk Management, if you want to extend a partition, the unallocated space must locate on the right side and adjacent to it. You can try a third-party software named AOMEI Partition Asssistant. It breaks the limitation mentioned above. And it has nothing to do with primary or logical. Maybe you can have a look of how to change partition size. This software supports almost all Windows PC system.
