Increase C: \ partition by attaching another partition

When we purchase a laptop or simply install Windows for the first time, it happens that your hard disk or SSD has multiple partitions.
Besides normal Windows partitions, we can have other partitions or even unallocated space.

Why increase the C: \ partition on which the operating system stays?

The answer is clear: Because it is sometimes necessary, especially if we make some space-consuming updates, or we simply want to install large apps in C: \.

Another reason to increase the partition C: \!

If you currently use Windows 7, and you want to switch to Windows 10, you will notice that Windows 10 has the habit of consuming a lot of space if left behind.
Windows 10 gathers updates for network sharing, Keeps the old version of the system In case of update, and therefore more space is needed on Windows 10.

Why do you need to increase the partition C: \?

First of all we need to have the partitioned disk, that is, beside the operating system partition, there must be another partition there, which we can attach to the partition of the system. If you do not have another partition or unallocated space, this method does not work.

How to increase the partition C: \?

Assuming we have another partition next to the system partition, we will delete that partition and attach it to partition C: \ by expanding partition C: \.
Everything is done from Windows, without the need for any additional programs.

WARNING - before expansion

It is recommended that you save important data on the partition to be deleted. You can save it on a stick, external hard drive, or stick enough for partition data.
A good idea is to have one Backup for Windows

    Hello! I have a Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1 kit and I would like to change it, meaning that when I want to install Windows 7, I have the option to choose which edition I want. I read some time ago that I had to walk in the Windows installation kit in the sources folder and delete a specific file, and then save the changes, make me another iso image and put it on a stick or DVD , When I installed I was able to choose which version of Windows 7 I want to install on 32 or 64 by bits. I do not know if this really was the right method or not. That's why I think it would be useful to have a tutorial like how to turn a Windows 7 kit into a Windows 7 AIO (All in One) kit.

    Hello! I have a Toshiba Encore WT8-A-102 tablet with Windows 10 and I'm having trouble with partition C. The tablet has a 5,63 GB recovery partition, but when I right click on it, I do not even see the command. It only opens a small window with the "HELP" command, and if I click on it, it takes me to Microsoft's help site. How do I delete this partition? Thank you!

    I have Windows 10 Pro version 1709 on 64 bit., I downplayed the "E" partition with 10Gb, formatted it, deleted it (not assigned), and wanted to attach it to the "C" partition .... I do not see "Volume expansion" over the other partitions.
    I mention that I do not have a "Multimedia" partition than that partition of "System Reserved" by 600 MB. Finally, I reattached it back to "E"

    ... I have subscribed to what Mr. Ionel Manea said ... I redistributed 'D', where I had 850 GB, I removed 200GB and I would like to add them to 'C' ... but I do not have the option of expansion, it 's blocked' any solution, or just reinstallation?
    thanks, all good and very successful!
