    Unable to Extend Partition

    I hope someone can help. Since upgrading to Windows 10 I have had to keep extending the primary partition, now up to 250Gb and full. I do have free capacity on another partition from which I have been taking spare capacity with any problems so far, but the partition tool won't let me take any more. Would appreciate any/all suggestions!

    I prefer to use third party software to defragment and compress the data, it's then easier to expand the C: partition, the other option is to backup the data in other data partitions, then either shrink or delete the data partition then expand the C: partition accordingly.

    I use ssd drives and just have the OS drive as single C: partition.

    After the upgrade, you'd need to do some cleanup to remove all the remnants. Open Admin Command prompt, copy and paste the line below to run:
    %SystemRoot%\System32\Cmd.exe /c Cleanmgr /sageset:65535 & Cleanmgr /sagerun:65535

    Put a check mark on everything except "Setup Log Files"

    To answer your question. Please post a screen shot of Disk Management

    1. Download Bootable Partition Manger | MiniTool Partition Wizard Bootable Edition and use Rufus - Create bootable USB to create a bootable USB.
    2. Boot your PC with the USB
    3. Right Click on the 794MB partition -> Move/Resize. A windows will popup, click and hold then drag this partition to the right.
    4. Next, move the mouse cursor on the right edge of C Drive until you see 2 vertical Bars, click and drag to the right to extend it. Click OK
    5. Click on "Apply" on the top left to commit the change.
    6. Remove the USB and Reboot your PC

    Can you boot from CD/DVD. If so then burn to a CD/DVD then boot. If not then you need to download and install the free version of Minitool:
    Free download Magic Partition Manager Software, partition magic alternative, free partition magic, partition magic Windows 7 and server partition software - Partition Wizard Online
    then follow the step above. Once click "Apply". The PC will reboot and commit the change offline.
