Repartitioning Hard Drive:

I am looking for repartitioning software to reallocate available free disk space from Drive D to Drive C on my Dell desktop computer.

About three years ago, I acquired a Dell Vostro 420 Tower desktop running on the Microsoft Vista 32 Operating System. I'm still using my original drive configuration but I've recently began to run low on my Drive © free space now a mere 876 MB) - while I still have ample Drive (D) free space - 189 GB.

In a previous computer life, I resorted to commercially available repartitioning software to balance out my hard drive usage. This worked out fine.

I'm at this stage again and am seeking a reliable and versatile repartitioning program. Shopping online, I've seen mention of the Avanquest Partition Commander 10 and Partition Commander 11 programs. How do these compare with other available programs?

Indeed, can anyone out there come forward with general advice about repartitioning my drive setup for more optimum performance, etc? Thanks,

Have you tried EaseUS partition manager? It's a free program, I've used it and it works good. I can't really give any advice on setting up your HD for optimal performance, what I have done with smaller drives is eliminate the partition so there is only one drive. It, like anything else done with partitions, is a risk. ALWAYS back up before you do anything, just in case.. :blink:

+1 for Easeus...it's what I use.

Whatever you decide upon...please take the time to read instructions/documentation before using.
