Hi, I currently am running Vista 32bit, I have three partitions on my hard drive, c,d, and e, all in NTFS format.

I have my operating system on C:, but am running out of space for it real quick. E: has a lot of free space for use, but isn't using it. I want to take that free space from E: and give it to C:.

I tried using windows disc management to do it, shrunk E: by 5gb, but that didn't really do anything as I couldn't append it to C: as D and E:'s are in the way.


I'm looking for an application that will help me to move the partitions around till I have that 5gb of added space on C:. I've heard of Partition Magic, and apparently it works, for a price. What free ware programs have you used that would do the trick for me instead?
This space will eventually have something very cool to fill it up, but not right now.

Yeah, I saw that, is there a windows install, because I don't know how to work with those tarbells, and that's all I saw.

I'll say up front that I haven't used this app, but it got a good review by Download.com's editors. It's called Easeus Partition Manager. It's available at Download.com.

I have used Easeus partition manager on my laptop and it worked great. I did see some reviews where it did not work on 64 bit windows but most people have 32 bit. It's a free program and I highly suggest backing up all important data just in case you have problems with it.. :thumbsup:
