    I recently installed Windows 7.
    Now I see 30GB isn't enough for all my programs & additional stuff.
    So I want to increase the partition but it somehow doesn't work, both using the built-in disk manager and the Acronis Disk Director (tried in both Vista and 7).
    Any help?

    Normally with the Acronis stuff you can increase the size.


    Oh wait I remember. You ahve to decrease the size of a partition that has free space, then you can increase the size of the other partition.

    Doesn't work.
    Whenever I try to add free space, it says that the partition has reached it maximum and then stops.

    So then Windows 7 somehow locked the partition size or when you made the partition you locked the size. I have no idea how to unlock it though.

    that symantec product is actually good. personally i used g parted (a linux software), but you have to be careful with it. it deletes your boot stuff
