    Unallocated space on left


    I have some unallocated space to the left of my c: drive, I have googled the issue and tried what I learned to reallocate it to my primary to no avail. I know it's just 300mb, but i would still like to recover that space if I can, any ideas? I have added a screenshot of what it looks like
    Thanks in advance

    You can, but you always run a risk when you manipulate partitions. I highly recommend to first image all partitions on that disk before you start. And then, is it really worth it.

    I have tried that already and the wizard tells me that I don't have enough free space. And I haven't found a reason why it tells me that, do i need to boot from a cd?

    Shrink your C:\ Partition to as small as possible then you might have room to move it. And yes you should do this from a Win PE environment. DVD/USB boot create in partition wizard
