    Imaged partitioned Drive


    I Acronised my Hard Drive (boot drive) which is 500 Gig to my SSD. Don't ask me why ASUS had it partitioned (as it does my second 500 Gig Drive).
    Here's what I see when I go to Windows Explorer. The SSD is obviously a clone of my HD, which SSD (C:\) is now showing 122 Gigs free space with a whopping 7.99 Gigs free. I also have an F: drive which is showing 89 free. This again is a Samsung VNand 850 EVO.
    I guess my question would be, does this slow down the SSD or does it not. Obviously, when the first partition (C:\) is filled, it will carry on to the F: and go from there as to adding whatever.
    Is this normal, abnormal or ok. Please advise. Thanks.

    I guess my question should be, is there anything I really need to do or just leave it as is. Your advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    From what I saw, there's nothing wrong with the way it is. You're good to go.

    So with it partitioned this way, I take from your reply this does not slow the SSD down any more than the HD being partitioned. Thank you so much for your reply and help.

    No, your HD is 500 GB and your SSD is 250GB so when migrating fromHD to SSD, the free space will be different.

    Understood. I was thinking at first, when I saw 7.99 Gigs free on the C drive, it might slow it down. I thought I had read somewhere when a Drive is full, it can slow down but I guess the SSD is really not full, since there is over 89 Gigs free.
    Anyway, I appreciate the fact that you're about. It sure gives us novices a measure of comfort when something goes pads up.

    Sorry. Actually, I misunderstood your question. If C: drive only has 7.9 GB left then it is low. I would suggest to move the data from from F: drive to E: drive, delete F: drive and then expand C: drive

    There actually is no data on F: to move. Presently, when I right click on F, there is no option to Delete. Actually, let me update that. There is 257,593,344 bytes showing on the F: drive. But (remember, you're dealing with a novice) how does one move that info over to the E: Drive and then delete when presently there is no Delete option showing when I right click? Remember, the SSD is an imaged Drive from my old(er) HD.
    Permit me to edit again. In Disk Management I can delete the F: Drive but the Extend Volume is grayed out in each of the Drives when I right click.

    Sorry, F: needs to be next to C: in order to expand C:

    Download: Bootable Partition Manger | MiniTool Partition Wizard Bootable Edition and put it in a USB stick using: Rufus - Create bootable USB
    Boot up and move the F: partition right after C; Drive then expand.
    Once booted from USB. You'd see a screen similar to the below:

    1. Right click on F: then select "Delete", F: will become unallocated.
    2. Right click on 350MB partition and select "Move/Resize" then drag this partition to right
    3. Click "Apply" on the top left to commit the change.
    4. Reboot. You should be able to expand C: drive.
