Is this Local Disk a patition, along with another or other partitions, on the same hard-drive? If so, something as powerful as Acronis Disk Director or anything similar [free or fee] should be able to resize the local disk [c-partition] from 40GB to 100GB. Be forewarned, if folders and files "live near the borders," you are in for a long wait as the resizer "moves" same from d-partition to c-partition.

If it is one partition, you probably could expand it. If that's just the size of the hard drive, you won't be able to expand it.
