Originally, my laptop came with the following disk configuration
OS(C:) 451 GB (Primary)
Recovery Drive: 13.81 GB (Primary)
Disk-OEM: 39 MB (Primary)
I needed three more partitions of 100 GB each for my data storage, leaving 151 GB for my OS, so I cut off a 100 GB chunk out of the initial 451 GB.
It was then that I came to know that Win7 offers a max of 3 primary and 1 extended partitions. Now my system treats that 100 GB chunk as an extended partition. I can only shrink it. I can create no more primary partitions + I can't resize my extended partition....
I tried deleting the entire 100 gb partition but it treats that as free space(not unallocated) and thus won't let me extend my C drive. Is there any way that i can increase my extended partition size?
