First of all thanks to everyone on this forum for their effort to help others in problem. Now, let me express my problem which I'm facing recently.
I'm using a Windows Vista PC with a HDD of the capacity of 160GB. Recently, I downloaded & installed lots of softwares in my C: drive and for that reason my drive has become full. Therefore, my PC is giving me warning that the drive is on LOW DISK SPACE.
Please guide me & advise me some easy steps so that I can increase the partition size of C: Drive without formatting my HARD DISK DRIVE (HDD), as I don't have the setup CD of WINDOWS VISTA along with me & I don't want to loss any of my important files & documents stored in my PC.
Kindly help me!
Will be waiting for your help, guys.
Thanks in advance...And, if I've written anything wrong, then please forgive me!

I also have the same problem of low disk space. I have a 160GB hard disc which has 2 partitions first one is of 40Gb where my OS is installed and second is a 120Gb partition. I don't have any unallocated space left on my hard disc. I have alot of free space on the second partition. Please advise me on how to increase the space on the first partition.

You cannot increase your hard disk size,its will be possible only if you had partition on it and by that extend the drive size but you only have 160GB,so either you remove all music and other type of data to an external device or add another hard disk to your pc and move them all to it and uninstall application not being used at all.

Good luck
