Extending boot partition

Postby galapogos » Wed Mar 15, 2017 12:37 am

Hi,

I just cloned my Windows 10 boot disk from a 120GB SDD to a 1TB SSD. I wish to extend my boot partition to use the entire space. This is what I see in disk management:

The unallocated space is disjointed from my C:. How can I join them with Partition Manager?

Is it safe to remove the 450MB recovery partition? This is a Windows 10 installation that was upgraded from Windows 7. I don't need to recover the Windows 7 anymore.

If you're sure the partition is not necessary, you can clear it. Once cleared, it can be merged with C:, and then after that, the last empty partition can be merged.

Thanks. I'm not entirely sure, so I moved it to the end of the partition so that the unallocated space is next to my C drive, and then merged them. That worked :)

Glad to hear it worked! I didn't even think to MOVE the partition. Good call!
