    My Windows 7 computer has installed an internal hard drive that has been partitioned into four: 150GB C drive, 60GB D drive, 60GB E drive and 50GB F drive. However, recently, my C drive has got a low disk space problem and asks me to increase its space. How can I increase my C drive space? Please, help me.

    Perhaps the two threads can be merged.

    What have you done to your C drive? In personal experiences, you do have three possible ways to increase your drive space:

    1). Free hard drive space
    Try to use all possible ways to free up your C drive space, such as running Disk Cleanup tool, removing to deleting some useless programs or files and more.

    2). Increase your C drive space in Disk Management.
    Have you checked whether there is enough free space on your rest partitions? If there is, you can try to extend your C drive with the free pace in Disk Management: Back up everything well, shrink the partition with free space and right click C drive to highlight “Extend” option in Disk Management.

    3). Use some partition resizing tools to increase C drive space.
    Of course, if the second way cannot work on your computer, you can directly use a partition resizing tool to resize your drive space, such as GParted, IM-Magic Partition Resizer Free and Paragon Partition Master.

    Note: No matter which way you choose to use, you’d better back up all your important data well at first.
