OK. I am in computer management. I am in disc 3. It has 3 partitions. The second partition is a new volume, healthy (primary partition). 227gb. I want to extend it. The next partion, on the right, I have deleted. It says 226gb unallocated. I right click on the second partition and hit extend volume. It says available "none".

Operating system Vista. Disk management: Control panel - administration tools - computer management - storeage -disc management.

Windows Disk Management is very limited (rubbish)

I almost exclusively use MiniTool Partition Wizard in preference.

It also has a bootable CD version which can useful as part of your Emergency kit.
