    Hi,
    To increase the derive size,
    Go to Control Panel,
    Go to "Create and Format Hard disk Partitions"
    Click on C Drive, and click on expand.
    If there is free space, enter the size to expand.
    Click Ok.

    Your C Drive size will be increased.
    Thank You.

    hello,
    Increase the driver size.
    windows 7 and vista include a built-in functionally in disk management to shrink and expand partitions.
    To get to this utility,open up control panel,and type in partition into the search box.
    you'll immediately see the link show up.


    shrink a partition
    In the disk management screen just right-click on the partition that you want to shrink,and select shrink volume from the menu.


    In the shrink dialog you will want to enter the amount you want to shrink by, not the new size.For example if you want to shrink your 50GB partition by roughly 10gb so that it will now be roughly 40gb,enter 10000 into the box:


    Extend a partition
    In the disk management screen just right-click on the partition that you want to shrink, and select extend volume from the menu.


    On this screen,you can specify the amount that you want to increase the partition by. in this case,i'm going to extend it back to the roughly 50gb size that it was before.
    Note that the extend partition feature only works with contiguous space.

    1. You will first need to delete the partition or volume that you want to extend into to make it a unallocated space.

    2. Open the Control Panel (icons view), and click on the Administrative Tools icon. then close the Control Panel window.

    3. Click on Computer Management in Administrative Tools, then close the Administrative Tools window.

    4. In the left pane under Storage, click on Disk Management. (See screenshot below)
    5. In the middle pane, right click on the partition or volume to the left of the unallocated space that you want to extend into and click on Extend Volume. (See screenshot above)
    NOTE: If the partition that you want to extend is to the right of the unallocated space, then you will need to use METHOD TWO below to extend it instead.

    6. Click on the Next button. (See screenshot below)7. Type in how many MB (1 GB = 1024 MB) you want to use from the unallocated space to extend the selected partition (step 5) into, then click on the Next button. (See screenshot below)
    NOTE: If you want to use all of the unallocated space to extend into, then type in the maximum available space shown for the unallocated space.
    8. Click on the Finish button. (See screenshot below)
    9. The partition or volume has now been extended into the assigned unallocted space (step 7). (See screenshot below)
    10. Close the Computer Management window. (See screenshot above)

    1 Merge your other drives in c:
    2. use 'partition magic' for decrease size of other drives and add this into c:
    3.Delete drive near c: and expand c: [complete loss of data in other drive]
    4.un-install unwanted programs

    Increase space may corrupt your data

    Best and safe option buy new disk.
