Why Can't Extend C Drive with Other Partition After Deleting

Hello, I installed Ubuntu before installing Windows on my disk. Then, I deleted Ubuntu and install Windows on my C drive. The problem is that I can't extend my C drive with the other partition which contained Ubuntu, which has stripes, by the way. I just can't do it in Disk Management. Is it because the C partition is in the last place on the drive? I really need help to resolve this problem please.

Hello, I'm here to help. After you delete your Ubuntu, you will get an unallocated space. When you use Disk Management to extend your C drive, you have to make sure that your free space is next to the C drive on the right side. This is a strict requirement you have to follow. If your unallocated space is not to the right of your C drive, the extending process cannot begin successfully.

Don't worry. In order to help you solve this problem, I recommend you use a tool called EaseUS Partition Master Professional. It can help you expand the C drive even when the target partitions are not adjacent. Also, it has a simple interface, which makes it easier for you to perform the task. You can use the "Resize/Move" feature and simply drag your C drive to make it bigger.

Here are the steps for you:

Step 1. Run EaseUS Partition Master. Go to the "Partition Manager" section.

Step 2. Select your C drive, right-click on it, and choose "Resize/Move".

Step 3. Drag your C drive into the unallocated space. Click "OK" and "Apply" to execute the task.

It will be much easier to extend your C drive with other partitions with the help of EaseUS Partition Master. I hope that this can solve your problem.
