Default Help Re: Increasing size of Patitioned Drive

Standard partitioned drive C & D

All program files, windows etc default to C, ergo C is rapidly approaching bursting point at 28.89 Gigs used, from a 32.5 max.

D: is where all the family gumph lives. I've used 3.7Gigs out of 22.2Gig free, that's 18.5Gigs free.
G: New Volume (can you guess what I've done yet) 9.67 free space form 9.67 max.

Question/problem

After Googling 'how to increase partitioned drive size', I followed some geeks steps that informed me how to ‘Shrink’ D: volume in Disc Manager and now I have another drive space volume instead of enlarging the capacity of C: ?

Can I remove the new volume (G) without totally loosing that space? Also, how does one enlarge C: without creating a 'new' drive volume???????????
Assistance would be warmly welcomed on this chilly evening in cyber-space.

I always used to use partitionmagic for this kind of thing. Works wonders.

I use gparted, but it does the same thing. You can delete the empty partition and then extend the other one into that space. You can delete G:\ and then extend C:\ into that space.
I would recommend a backup first, as for anything to do with changing partitions

I also recommend gparted, but be sure to use the livecd. From experience, after you resize a ntfs that windows is on you MUST not skip the checkdisk, or you will corrupt the disk, no matter what utility you used to do it.
