    Hi
    I just bought Acronis Disk Suite 10 to do just one thing, make my c drive larger.
    Now I can't seem to do it and I am covinced that it will allow any other drive to be resized but not the c drive.
    Any help?
    Thanks

    You haven't given very much information to go on.

    What build of TI 10 are you using?

    How large is your current C drive?

    How much free (unallocated) space is on the drive?

    Are you trying to enlarge the partition?

    If there is free space available, try booting from the rescue cd and trying to do the resize. Sometimes it works better than initiating the procedure from in Windows.

    I just bought it today and downloaded ver 2117.
    Then I found out that I had to update to ver 2160.
    Why in the world did they not give me the newest version in the first place.
    I have read in this forum that ver 2160 is still not fully finished and compatable with Vista.
    I was not sure that it was possible to resize the primery, and that was all I realy wanted to know.
    When I try to resize the c drive it goes through all the reboots and then when it is finished, nothing has been changed.

    This seems to be quite a common problem. Try booting from the rescue cd and doing the resize from there.
