Hi,

I've had a dual-boot set-up for a long time now - Win 10 Pro (64-Bit) and Win 7 Ultimate (64-Bit). However, I haven't really used Win 7 in years and am always running out of space on Win 10 - down to the last 4.5GB now. Therefore it makes sense to sacrifice Win 7 so that Win 10 can flourish with the extra 117GB. What is the safest and risk-free way to go about this: delete or reformat 7? Merge both partitions? Resize or extend Win 10? And so on. Yes, both o/s are on the same disk and adjacent to each other.

Any advice would be appreciated. Many thanks. DANNY

My tech specs:
Windows 10 Pro (64-bit)
Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit)

8GB Corsair PC2-6400 800mhz XMS (4 X 2)
PNY GTX 9700 XLR8 OC 4GB
Corsair HX 620w PSU
Hitachi CCTV DVR 7200rpm 64MB 2TB

Hi Terry,
Here is the screenshot, hope it's usable (believe it or not, this is the first time I've ever made a screenshot - let alone upload one). Alas, my motherboard is too old for UEFI - rather, good old BIOS (by the way, I've now got Paragon Partition Manager).
Ah, spoke too soon - can't work out how to upload an image file on this site. More help required! Stupid me, now worked it out. View: https://imgur.com/YQNq61X


Thanks,
DANNY
