Go to Start and type in "diskmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter

Right click on the partition that you wish to extend (the 125 gB one) and select "Extend".
Follow the wizard to allow it to take from the other partition to do this.

This presumes that both partitions are on the same physical disk. If not, then you'll have to look into the options to span volumes.

I was wanting to do the same thing...to extend the C: partition and shrink the remaining unallocated space that was taking up half of my 1Tb drive.
I followed your (usasma) instructions and did what the " wizard " told me it indicated that I could only change so much space and it had the numbers already in the input box so I didn't change a thing...... I just clicked next.... and *poof* done.
I was reluctant to use an outside program like EASEUS Partition Master software to do this .

rolltide101 is right...you are the smartest " advisor " I have come in contact with here at BC .

Thanks for all the help you have given to me and the countless others that you have helped as well.

Ronnie
