    Can't Extend Volume


    Hello. I'm a New Member on this forum. Nice to Meet U Everyone

    I have something to ask about my partition problem here :

    Click image for larger version

    That's my partition list, and I want to extend Unallocated drive (that I recently used for Ubuntu) to drive C or D, but I can't do that because I can't click "Extend Volume" at drive D.

    Click image for larger version

    Any ideas ? what I supposed to do ?

    Thanks.

    Minitool partition wizard will solve your problems and its free.
    You'll probably need to move the empty space next to the partition you want to expand it to.

    As you have updated to Windows 8.1, you can not user DM to extend that partition to C:.


    I would look for a 3rd party Partitioning, software, which fully supports Windows 8/8.1, uEFI, GPT & Secure Boot.
    Which is signed by Microsoft.
    That I know of at this time is

    Hard Disk Manager Suite ? complete system management | PARAGON Software Group - disk partitioning, resize partition
