I would like to increase the size of my C drive by reducing the size of my D
drive. Can you please tell me how to do this?

If you want to do this without losing any data on the current C:
partition, you will need third-party software such as Partition Magic
or BootIT NG.

There is some risk of data loss even with PM or, probably, BootIt;
e.g., if there is a power loss during the shuffling, PM/BootIt may
not recover correctly. So, I suggest backing up before you shuffle.

The easiest way to solve your problem is to use a special program for
it. Personally I use Acronis partition software, so I can tell you step
by step instruction for it:
1.View ->Manual Mode.
2.Click right button on disk D -> Resize, decrease your D drive, press
OK.
3.Click right button on disk C -> Move ->Next -> Make you C drive full
on the scale->press OK.
4.COMMIT
By the way, this program allows you to do many things without reboot in
contrast to Partition Magic. That's why I chose it.

Hi, Judy Mac!
For some time ago I did the same thing as you wish. And for resolve it
I used the way that tommy_g_ac@yahoo.com suggested, I use this
'partition software'
(http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/diskdirector/) too. I
couldn't even imagine that it might be so easy and convenient. So just
follow his advice, and everything will be clear.
Tried remedy! ;)
