Hello, I currently use PPM = Paragon Partition Manager 11 free since I also had the light version but didn't see any difference - perhaps it was a mistake to get rid of the light version? In fact, I've got a laptop hdd with about 60 giga, and I've got my system files in partition c: but I also got a partition d: with all my own files. This drive d: is almost full whilst on drive c: I've got about 8 giga of free space. So I used Defraggler to put all my things within c: to the beginning of c: (I had used Auslogics Defrag before, but which is not able to place my data at the beginning of a given drive, so there was no space at the end of it - of course, since Auslogics is so bad, it's easy for them to be "faster" than Defraggler, which seems to be a very good and nice program - both are free, btw), and I used PPM to resize c: In spite of having all the free space at the end of c:, that took about an hour, for some 6 giga of free space - I think this is ridiculous, but ok, I use the free version. Now, I want to enlarge d:, and I've been trying for THREE HOURS now to do this, without success. Perhaps, as said, it's the fact that I use the free version, but then, it would be good if the program TOLD me that I can't do it with the free version, but could do it with the paid version, but it doesn't tell me anything. First, the 6 giga between c: and d: were "unallocated space", and I tried in vain to enlarge d: (which would be to the left since on the right of d:, there is no space on the hdd) but PPM only offers me to REDUCE the size of d: (in the 3 fields to enter sizes, I cannot enter larger numbers since PPM simply does not "recognize" the free 6 giga BEFORE d:, and enlarging d: with the mouse also is impossible). I also tried to do something with the "unallocated space", but to no avail. By this I mean I also tried to "get the task done" selecting the space between c: and d:, instead of selecting d:, then trying things. So, finally, I created another "partition" out of that "unallocated space", and now I've got an unwanted, formatted third partition, g:, between c: and d:. Of course, there is NO WAY I've found that allows either for resizing = ENLARGING my partition d: = to the left, by that incorporating the unwanted partition g: (i.e. starting with d: selected), nor for integrating the partition g: into d:, to the right of g: (i.e. starting with g: selected). All this does NOT entice me in any way to buy anything from Paragon, all the less so since years ago, with PPM 7, I even LOST LOTS OF DATA by trying similar things then, data I have never recovered since. Today, I'm not as naive as I had been then, so I'd be covered agains any possible data loss, but it seems that PPM has not got much better than it was many versions ago, since it seems to "dumb" to enlarge a partition to the left, but only can do that to the right. XP3, NTFS. Any ideas, perhaps for competing programs? In fact, with PPM, don't make your system partition c: too large, and your data partition d: too tiny, since you'll never be able to change anything about it later, or are you? EDIT : I wish to add that I just discovered that g: is another "primary" partition, not a "logical" one, as I had expected it to be. Whilst from c: I run the comp, so it's correct that c: must be a primary partition, it seems that additional partitions should be "logical" ones, except when you want to boot from them, alternatively, which is not the case here. So I perhaps delete this partition and try anew, trying to create a logical one - but I'm sure PPM didn't ask me if I wanted to have it "primary" or "logical", first time... The whole "help" of this Russian program is a total mess, and you can't get anything valid out of it. I perhaps should have bought Acronis years ago, instead... EDIT 2: So I deleted the new "g:" partition, in order to have "unallocated space" again with which I then, perhaps, I could have created another new partition, but a logical one, this time. So I had the "good" idea to check a checkbox within the "delete" command that was offered to me, and which said something like "allocate newly-gained space to the END of the physical device", since I told myself, very well, this will perhaps delete the unwanted partition here, but will create "unallocated space" not here, between c: and d:, but beyond d: ! Well, an hour and a half later - we're speaking of 6 giga on a normal hdd here -, and having me presented a screen saying "Moving partition" or something like that, not "Deleting partition", I'm finished, and heureka, the "unallocated space has indeed been moved... Unfortunately, not to the end of the disk, but BEFORE c: And no, this is not a joke, and no, I did not, by inadvertancy, check the other checkbox available in the delete command, "move the space to the beginning of the physical device", or something like that, I very well had checked the box "at the END", and with this result. Anyway, having to DELETE a partition, and MOVE it, in order to EXPAND another partition, is TOTAL CRAP anyway, but now, what should I do? Since the checkbox "move the space to the end" did indeed move it to the beginning: Should I now, again, DELETE my new partition, but check the box "move the space to the beginning"... in order to actually move it to the end? Or should I do a reinstall of my Windows system, and forget about these "Paragon" things? As we've seen, this program is TOTAL CRAP, from begin to end. Are there really people who BUY this software - or do they have these incredible bugs in the free versions of their progs only? Ain't there legal authorities out there to protect consumers from things like that?
