I have a 320Gb HDD in my laptop running Vista SP1. It is divided into 3 partitions - C: (Boot partition; NTFS format), D: (Data; NTFS partition) and E: (Recovery; FAT32 partition). I am trying to use Disk Director to take some of the space (50Gb) from C: and add it to D:. There is more than sufficient free space on C: to enable this transfer. I installed Disk Director Suite (10.0, build 2160) on my laptop and went through the process of selecting which partition I wanted to increase and which partition I wanted to take it from. Everything seemed to go OK and committed and then rebooted. The boot up sequence indicated that it was analyzing, locking and then checking partitions. It then came up with an error indicating that it was unable to proceed. (I don't remember seeing any error code). I rebooted and found no changes made to my partitions. I created a bootable disc and tried the same repartitioning. When I tried using the "Full" version of Disk Director, it was unable to find my hard drive. When I tried using the "Safe" version, everything seemed to be going OK until I committed to the change. The box came up showing the state of progress, but nothing happened. I left it running for over an hour (in case it was very, very slow), but no progress bar appeared and it seemed to be doing nothing. I rebooted and repeated the attempt at repartitioning, and it still seemed to freeze. Can anybody please advise how I can resolve this issue and repartition my drive? Many thanks in advance for your help.
