is it just a case of goto disk management - right click and opt to increase volume size. will this affect info on that volume? or is it for just blank volumes.

To increase a volume size, you must shrink another volume.

The shrink partition utility can only decrease the partition size down to the first unmovable/locked system file. To get round this, temporarily turn off System Restore, do the shrink and turn System Restore back on. Running a defrag may also move some of the ‘unmovable’ files.

Alternatively, you can shrink partitions by running the diskpart command from the Vista DVD.
