Can't extend volume?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have around 190gb unallocated on my 1tb drive, i want to extend it but i can? When i make it a new partition is tells me its a Logical drive, i tried extending using EaseUS partition master but it still wont work, also when i shrink down my C: drive the unallocated storage thats shrunk down from the C: is "seperated". Like this
Is there anyway i can use that 189 Gigs to extend my C:?
This is what happend, i shrunk down my D drive, then 2 unallocated storages appeared, only 1 worked to extend my C: using EaseUS and the other one stayed "un-usable"

I believe this doesn't work because they are not connected (the 2 and 189 gb), since the D drive is in between (literally, like on the disk) .
You might try to add the 2gb to the D drive then shrink the D drive by two on the left and then add it to the 189gb partition.

EDIT: Ah so I misread the question, I think you'll need someone other than me to solve it for you.

I just want to extend my C: drive, i just need to know how to use that 189gb left so i can extend my C: drive. I tried adding the 189gb partition to the D drive then shrinking it down again then using it to extend C: but that didn't work.

You need to move the D: partition to the end of the drive so the 189GiB free space is contiguous with the C: partition.
