    Or PartitionMagic.

    I must say, the OS should not have been put on that drive in the 1st place... 20Gb is too small. A drive should have @ least 15% free space. Anyway, you'll it reconfigured.

    Cheers,

    Partition Magic has not been relevant or even operational for a very long time.
    Symantec stopped updating it many years ago.
    It definitely will not work with the new MBR of Vista +

    I used that years ago, but today I use Easeus Partition Master 9.1.1 (Professional)
    I got it free on a special offer. There are other Partition Managers that work about the same way.

    But remember, to increase the size of one partition, you must first DE-crease the size of another partition, to create some FREE Space. Then add the Free Space to your C partition.
    When done properly, it all works out fine.

    Doing the whole thing from a Bootable CD, is my own preferred way of working with my hard drive.
    Most good Partition Managers, will make that Bootable CD for you....if you let it.

    Good Luck!

    Yeah, it's got a beard longer than Santa Clause.
    So by now, we surely hope that the OP got it sorted out. Eh?
