SSD partition question

Recommended Posts



I have an SSD (no HDD) partitioned into two - it's a long story but that's the way it is.


C is running out of space (Win 7 installed on C together with FSX) and D is unused.


Is it possible to expand the C partition or even eliminate the D part so that the whole SSD is just C - without having to go through the whole uninstall/re-install hassle?


As you can probably guess from my question, my computer skills are zero. I can turn it on and off - and that's about it.  If anyone is kind enough to reply, I'd be grateful if you'd answer in layman's terms :-)

Hi Gavin,


Yep - if the space on D: is unused - you should have no issue - Win10 ?


This isn't step by step - merely an overview - just going from memory - take with a grain of salt and be sure of what you're doing before committing changes - as you can destroy your data if not done properly...


Right click on My Computer - select "Manage"....


Then select "Storage/Disk Management" to get in the tool...


You should delete your D: partition and when the space is unallocated - you should be able to add it to your C: partition...


You use the tool by clicking on space/partitions to select - then right click for options...

Hi Scott


Thanks for getting back to me.  No, not Win 10, Win 7.


Unfortunately I can't be sure of what I'm doing because I'm not really a computer expert and I really want to avoid destroying my data on C.  Which isn't meant to sound in any way ungrateful for your advice - I hope you understand :-)
