Hi, good evening.

 

I have Windows 11 installed, and I have an SSD with 480GB. It has 2 partitions (C and D)

 

I shrank D and now I have a 30GB of unallocated space but in Disk Management, Extend Volume in C, is disabled. Does anyone know why I can't extend C:? :(

@_moyMorales Disk Management cannot extend C if there's no contiguous Unallocated space. The 30GB of unallocated space must be on the right of D. You need to move D to the right and make the 30GB unallocated space adjacent to C. Watch the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-xYu27zS80

This video shows what to do when Disk Management is unable to extend C drive in Windows 11 laptop/desktop/Surface pad.Disk Management can only extend a parti...
It works! You are my bff :*
Thank you so much.
