    Low Disk Space
    « on: December 31, 2008, 01:12:05 AM »
    Hello. I have an AMD athalon, xp sp3 with a 100 gig + 200 gig+200 gig drives.
    The 100 is partitioned into 20 and 80 gig, with the 20 being designated to being the C: Drive. I currently run AVG for virus control.

    About the C:, Most of the programs are loaded there by default (and yes I know I can set it to load elsewhere), so, Can I increase the size of the drive partition without affecting the the programs? and if so How?

    Thank you for looking at my post.
    Id like to wish everyone a Happy and Safe Christmas break and a Great New Year.  ;D
    It takes 15 years to become an overnight success & Windows 10 will add another 10 years to it.

    They have some software to change the size of your drives. There are others out there but this is the one I like.

    Good luck...

    Personally i would take the first 200G SATA and create a 100G partition on it and then "clone" the existing install to it and then use that as my boot drive giving you room to spare...
