Hi,

I am using Acronis to try resizing a 200 GB partition, the last partition on my SATA 750 GB HD, but it wont.

I've looked at the other partitions to see if Acronis is working and they are all available to resize easily.

This 200 GB partition though recognized is not available for resizing (the up and down blue tabs next to it wont light up?). I can move the partition and/or change the size of unallocated space around this partition but it will not be made available for resizing? I don't get this when the other partitions can be resized?

Does anyone know why this might be? And how it might be fixed?

I am tired of moving large amounts of GB between partitions to delete partitions just to resize them!

John

Just a WAG, rename the volume, assign a different drive letter

WOW, :thumbsup:

That actually worked. I got up to 40 MB/s initially then settling to about 20 MB/s, still a big improvement.

So, why would that make a difference?

I am trying to set up my PC so that I don't have to change things around to often but I'd still like to keep high performance.

Is that possible?

Thanks,
