I read the tutorial on extending/shrinking a partition. I need to add more space on my D drive which is my recovery drive. It's full. I did a shrink of my C drive for some unallocated space. I then was following the tutorial instructions to extend my D drive using the unallocated space. "Extend" isn't an option when I right click on the drive. It's greyed out.
Why would I be trying to do this: My laptop started giving me a warning that my Recovery D drive was low on space. I can no longer download anything or even print pictures using my Adobe Photoshop. So, I explore my D drive to see what's in there that I don't need in hopes of freeing up some space. The only things that see in there are stuff that is needed to run my computer.
Being the computer brainiac that I am NOT, I thought that by doing a "clean" reinstall of my OS that my computer would revert back to the point of purchase and anything added after purchase would be gone. First I copied everything over to an external harddrive and then I used my OS CD that came with my laptop and followed the directions it gave me to reinstall it.
Got it done, then clicked over to see that my Recovery D drive was still FULL!
Guess I should have just paid the geeksquad guy the 200.00 that he wanted to fix it BEFORE I decided I was smart enough to figure it out myself!
Can anyone tell me where to go from here before I'm no longer able to even turn this bugger on?
