Windows 10: Expanding SSD Partition Size Solved

    Expanding SSD Partition Size


    I have a Samsung 850 EVO 500g SSD that was originally made to house two partitions, C: and D:.

    I've migrated all my files from D: to another drive and have unallocated the D: drive.

    But now I'm having trouble allocating all the space now recovered from D: to the C: drive.

    The problem is that between the C: and the unallocated space is a partition of 450mb that says "Healthy (Recovery Partition)".

    How do I expand my C: to take up all the available disk space (currently 322gb available!) ?

    Thanks.

    Install MiniTool Partition Wizard:

    Move the 450MB Recovery Partition to the end of the drive. Then you can expand C: drive into the empty space. Don't forget to click the apply button. MiniTool will probably want to reboot the computer to expand the C: drive partition - it will look scary when it reboots, but don't worry about, it'll be OK. Although since it is expanding C: drive and not shrinking it, it might not need to reboot.

    You can also use MiniTool Partition Wizard to re-assign drive letters, if you want to, although you can also use Windows built-in disk management to do that.

    Well that was easy. Whew! Thanks again.
