I don't think that is possible. I'd have to research some options. You might be able to extend C: onto D: but not sure off hand.

Why do you need to add 200GB to C:?

These types of answers are the answers you get from seasoned professionals. When I build a system with multiple drives, the only thing that gets installed on C: is the OS, everything else gets installed or saved to the alternate drives.

The more crap you have installed on C: you can notice performance issues and the possibility of your drive getting filled up which will cause you further problems.

The suggestion from Zealous is quite reasonable and one that I would suggest as well.

You have stated that you have a computer, you have 2 Hard drives and half a question. You demand a answer to something where;

- you don't point out your OS, so we assume windows.
- you don't say what version of OS you have.(Every OS has different features, computers are not one size fit's all)
- you don't say what task your really trying to do.
- you don't give enough information for us to help.
- you don't need us going through the 500 point check list to figure out what your on about.
- you don't like the answer because you don't ask for help correctly.

Please we don't need this types of posts.......lol

Now if you would like us to help which i am sure we are more then happy to, you just need to tell us what is going on like a big boy.
(My reply may be over the top yes, but i personally think it is called for!)


Explain what you want at the end of it all and the reasons behind it so we can do your research and figure out a solution to help.

I've been playing around with a virtual machine running Windows 7 64-bit and there is no way to take space from one drive and "give" it to another. At least there is no way to do it with the built in tools. You may be able to do it with a third part solution but so far as I can tell you are out of luck.

So you have two options:

1. Rebuild the machine with C drive as the 500GB disk

or

2. Move files from C: to D: and stop saving things to C: unless absolutely necessary.

even with a re partition you can not add space to a hardware device that exceeds it's limits. I don't think it would like saving data half half when limit is reached i am sure there will be data corruption even if it worked.

I just don't see why he can't use shortcuts or even reinstall software to D: E: or F: w/e: drive
