You can use Partition Wizard to copy the partition but the partition needs to be copied to unallocated space. In other words you will need to delete the logical partition on the other disk. Then copy your partition to the unallocated space. The unallocated space needs to be at least as big as the partition you are copying. I would also open some files after the copy operation to see if it was successful.

It's always a good idea to backup any data before doing any kind of partition movement even though I have never had a problem with Partition Wizard.

That is strange. I never had an issue downloading and running it. Maybe it's your security software saying the software is not common.

I just did that... I am now trying to format (quick and standard) the drive..but it says other things are using the drive and wont let me format unti I quit them... no clue what is running. I have put programs on that logical drive... can I do something in control panel or where I can start, stop or manually or auto start programs (I forget what this is called)?

WOW! having huge issues with my send buttons today... anyway I got it figured out.. moved my stuff but then couldnt format the drive.. I remembered I had the page file set to that drive because of the space it takes up... moved that and now I have Disk0 as my entire C:\ drive... thanks for your help...

interesting..now I can see my post and your reply...I used apps on win7 to do what I needed... namely disk management and straight up highlight and move my files (3min for 113G).... moved my page file.. then I was able to format my old partition, deleted it and expand my C:\ partion to the full size of my physical drive...
