If you want to transfer "free space" from one HDD to another - than the answer is no. But if you have one hard disk, devided into 2 or more partitions, than you can manage them. This will become clear once you enter Disk Management. Click on the Start button and then choose Control Panel.
Click on the System and Security link.
In the System and Security window, click on the Administrative Tools heading located near the bottom of the window.
In the Administrative Tools window, double-click on the Computer Management icon.
Make a screenshot and post it, if you are not sure about what you see there. Also, to free up some space on your drive, and improve performance as well, you can defragment your hard disk. More about this here:  http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/improve-performance-defragmenting-hard-disk#1TC=windows-7
Hope this was helpful, best regards, Citizen_WD

Pardon...but you can easily transfer space from one partition to another...using any one of various partition managers.


In essence, you first decrease the size of the partition having the excess space...creating unallocated space...then you expand the size of the partition with the smaller space by adding the unallocated space you have created...to the smaller partition.  The actual sequence used will vary slightly by partition manager but in the end, the result will be taking space from Partition 1 and adding it to Partition 2.


Among partition managers that I have used to do this:  EaseUS Partition Manager.  Among other tools used by members to do such: 

    GParted Partition Manager - http://gparted.sourceforge.net/ ,

    MiniTool Partition Wizard - http://www.partitionwizard.com/download.html


In any case...please read the directions for using the partition manager...before attempting any resize of partitions.
